Inclusion BC Federation Summit on October 3

As we celebrate our 60th anniversary year and Community Inclusion Month in October, all Inclusion BC members are invited to attend our Federation Summit on October 3 in Burnaby.

Facilitated by Vince Verlaan.

Vince Verlaan skilfully weaves robust engagement and communication activities into cutting-edge initiatives in various sectors. With 25 years’ experience in multi-stakeholder policy creation, program development, project implementation, and education initiatives in BC, Canada and internationally, he blends participatory planning theory and practice with hands-on facilitation skills.  Increasingly called on for training and public speaking, Vince uses dialogue techniques to reduce community conflict, accelerate learning, build trust, and support joint action.

In this period of great change, there are many opportunities for innovation. But there are also serious barriers that threaten the future of inclusive communities and require coordinated and allied action.

Inclusion BC’s membership is our greatest source for information, evidence, perspectives and direction. Join us as we plan for the future together.
