The Langley Volunteer Bureau’s April 1, 2020 newsletter is an update from us and information that you may not have yet received regarding organizations, volunteering and learning opportunites.
Workshops to resume in the Fall
Late last year, Langley Volunteer Bureau proposed a set of five topics that would be of interest to some of our Organizations and Volunteers alike. With all good intentions, we set out to have one presentation a month starting with ‘Volunteer Recruitment and Governance’ in January. Due to a snow storm, that one was postponed to early February.
Also, in February, we were able to proceed with the regularly scheduled presentation ‘Conducting Effective Meetings’.
Then came a worse storm… Covid-19.
We see much merit in offering these presentations and plan to resume with them when it is safer.
What we would like to have now is input of whatever topics you would like to have presented and/or anything you have of value that could be presented by you or others. We will review all suggestions and decide to add them to our Speaker Series Calendar of Events.
In the meantime, stay safe, keep your distance and help others when and where you can, it’s in our best interest.
Jim Mair, LVB Board Member and Chair of Speaker Series Committee
If you have a topic that you would like us to present, please email our Speaker Series Chair, Jim Mair
