You are invited to a collaborative evening for local organisations to learn, share and coordinate!

Our goal with this event- is to assist non-profit organisations to improve their capacity, increase efficiency, reduce duplication of services and encourage greater collaboration between groups. 

Employees, volunteers, directors are all invited to attend- even if you just want to find out about some of the different organisations and aren’t involved yet. So please feel free to forward this email to anyone who you think might be interested. 

The evening will begin with an opportunity to visit different non-profit displays.  16 non-profits will have a table which will be set up around the exterior of the hall.  Each of them will create a display about their organisation, and their projects.  If you are interested in booking a table- please contact Deanne Steven in advance by May 15th at deanne@tourismrossland.com  This opportunity is free!

After a chance to mingle, and check out the displays, grab a drink and some food for our presentations. 

Presentations will include:

  • Deanne Steven Non-Profit 101–  briefly outline what a non-profit is, and review some of the administration requirements. 
  • Non-profit “Elevator Pitch”– 10 non-profits will have a 3 minute opportunity and 2 powerpoint slides to describe their organisation, and what their priorities are.  Must preregister with Deanne Steven by May 15th!  email: deanne@tourismrossland.com  There is no cost to this opportunity!
