HiC Executive Directors’ Breakfast Series Wraps Up

Many thanks to all the Executive Directors who joined us for our breakfast series at Assiniboine Park’s Qualico Centre. We met three times over a hot breakfast to network and learn from each other, and discussed three topics; Being a Healthy Organization, Implementing Strategic Plans, and Strengthening Capacity for Evaluation.

To see photos from the breakfasts in October, December and February, check out our Facebook page!

We would also like to congratulate Rainbow Resource Centre, winner of up to two days of Health in Common services! Each time participants attended a breakfast, they were entered into the draw; the winner was drawn at the final February 16th gathering.
