Waterloo-Wellington Learning Alliance
The Waterloo-Wellington Learning Alliance is a partnership of PIN, The People and Information Network and the Volunteer Action Centre of Waterloo Region who provide professional development as part of their services. It is an Education and Training service for community benefit organizations in the Region of Waterloo and Wellington County offering training and consultation in board governance, organizational wellness and volunteer engagement.
We envision strong, resilient organizations that create strength and well-being in their communities and are pleased to present the following workshops in the Wellington County and Waterloo Regional areas.
Mentoring Workshop (previously scheduled for March 26) postponed until Fall 2020.
With our collaborating partner, the Volunteer Action Centre, we have made the decision to postpone the March 26 Mentoring workshop.
Our organizations are monitoring Public Health Wellington Dufferin Guelph and Waterloo Region and while the current risk of infection has been identified as low, we recognize this is an evolving issue and we feel in the best interest of reducing risk, this is the right decision.
Refunds will be issued to those who had registered for the Mentoring workshop and a new date will be shared once it has been set.
As we continue to monitor, we will be paying close attention to our workshop lineup and make adjustments accordingly.
Festivals and Fairs Workshop (previously scheduled for March 30) postponed until further notice.
The Festivals and Fairs workshop is sponsored by the City of Cambridge who shared with us that current city cancellations are in place and run through to April 5, however with the evolving situation, this may be longer.
With this information, the March 30 Festivals and Fairs workshop is postponed. A new date will be shared once it has been set.
Teamwork makes the dream work!
Whether you are an employee, volunteer, family member or friend, the ability of a group of people to work together is critical to achieving larger organizational or community goals.
Teamwork requires people to share their individual skills and expertise and to leverage the skills and expertise of others to achieve something greater than what would be possible by a single individual.
This course explores key characteristics of strong teams and provides practical advice on how to be an effective team member or leader.
Thursday, May 28 from 9:00 am to 12 noon in Guelph
