There are over 700 non-profit organizations in the Central Okanagan that deliver critical services and greatly benefit our community in a variety of sectors on a daily basis. Join two special discussion Town Halls hosted by Norm Letnick that focuses on non-profit organizations in the community, how they have been impacted and how they have pivoted during these challenging times.
You will gain insight into how non-profit organizations function, how they deliver essential services, the impact they make and how they will be transitioning along with the rest of the community.
This event is important for all non-profit organizations to learn from leaders in their fields, and also for the community, to see how their services are impacted and they can support these worthwhile organizations.
Share your voice and ask your questions. There will be two Town Halls to join in:
