Learning Opportunities for Members

The Federation supports our members and strengthens BC’s community social services sector through advocacy and outreach, networking, exchanging information, and consistently bringing a balanced perspective to discussions with provincial and national decision-makers.

Doing all of that requires that we stay in constant communication with our members—both providing them with up-to-date resources and information and listening to their experiences, issues, and struggles so that we can respond appropriately and advocate on their behalf.

While The Federation won’t be hosting a conference this June, we are still doing our very best to provide our members with information and learning opportunities. This week, I am excited to share with you a new series of free “lunch-and-learn” presentations with special guests that will take place during the month of June.

We’re calling them ‘Webinar Wednesdays’ and members will have the opportunity to hear from Al Etmanski, Merlyn Horton, and Denise Williams on topics like disability, online social service delivery, and mental wellness. Details for each of the three sessions are below and registration is open now! And all registered participants will have access to recordings and slide decks from each selected webinar whether or not they are able to attend each session.

We are also working on other ways of connecting, learning, and sharing information and best practices with and among members in the absence of in-person events so if you have ideas or want to get involved, feel free to contact me at sherry@fcssbc.ca with your thoughts!
