Board Voice holds a conference every year to bring together members for a two-day, in-depth conversation with leaders and big thinkers from the non-profit sector, key government representatives, innovators and change-makers.
The conference is a terrific time to connect with sector colleagues and share successes, challenges and strategies. Conference 2018, “Up to All of Us,” was held Nov. 16-17 at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond.
Alex Nelson was our opening keynote speaker for the 2018 conference. He is from the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw First Nation in Kingcome Inlet. A residential school survivor, he’s a dedicated athlete, coach and supporter of Indigenous sport, and helped found the Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Association of BC, Canada’s first provincial Aboriginal sport body. He served as the organization’s executive director until 2009.
Stay tuned for more highlights from the 2018 conference that will be posted here soon.
