Since December 2017, the CRC hosted 2 exclusive events for the directors of West Island community organizations. The event was designed to bring directors together to Connect, Celebrate and Innovate!
During the busy days of running a community organization, it can sometimes feel overwhelming and a little “lonely at the top”. Many West Island directors have the opportunity to see each other on different committees or at different events, but don’t always have the chance to connect and network with one another.
The CRC created this new initiative to bring directors together to take a moment to enjoy each other’s company, to discuss shared realities, and celebrate the success of local organizations and the community sector. The group also brainstormed ideas for collective strategies that could benefit our local community organizations. The directors have already discussed their communications needs and plan to continue their collective efforts in order to support the West Island community organizations.
