Thank you to everyone whose work, attendance and presentations cumulated in a terrific conference for Board Voice Sept. 23-24 at the Richmond campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

The annual conference is an excellent time to connect and engage with non-profit CEOs and board directors from all over BC, and join in the working tables that are popular aspects of our conferences. We love the dialogue that happens at those tables.

We were delighted at the 2022 conference to have PLEA Community Services Knowledge Keeper Chuck Lafferty as our opening keynote speaker, and Queenie Choo of S.U.C.C.E.S.S as our closing keynote. In between, participants heard from Bruce MacDonald of Imagine Canada, Parliamentary Secretary Niki Sharma, BC Representative for Children and Youth Jennifer Charlesworth, and a high-level Deputy Ministers’ panel on cross-ministry social planning in the BC government.

And that’s just a few of the terrific presenters featured at the conference. For board members and senior staff of non-profit BC community social services, this is an annual event not to be missed.

We’ll be sure to keep you informed on plans for our next conference in May 2023. Thank you to Kwantlen Polytechnic University as a valued partner in the Board Voice conference.
