Edmonton Area Executive Directors, join your peers in a casual atmosphere where leaders can connect, learn, and break down those pesky silos that persist in the sector.

Please note: This evening is exclusively for non-profit Executive Directors, CEOs, and equivalent positions.

Wine & Wisdom is your chance to network with fellow Executive Directors & CEOs and to exchange insight and stories about your experiences in the nonprofit sector. Wine & Wisdom is built on the belief that regular networking is essential to creating a strong non-profit sector and affecting change in our communities.

Don't miss this opportunity to join your peers in a comfortable atmosphere and pick their brains on the issues leaders face in the non-profit sector! 

The Discussion: Chickens, Accidents, and Politics

For the last Wine & Wisdom of 2019 and the first to be held with our next federal government, ECVO Executive Director Russ Dahms is taking the mic for one final discussion about the state of the sector locally, provincially, and nationallyRuss will speak on what he's learned about charity, capacity building, and collection action in more than a decade as ED and what he sees emerging in the next decade and beyond. He'll speak to recent developments, including the Senate Report on the Charitable Sector, and what opportunities they present for Executive Directors in the future.

With Russ set to retire in early 2020, this Wine & Wisdom is one of the last remaining opportunities to connect with him. Don't miss it!

"People talk about bike riding when they want to remind us that some things, once learned, are not forgotten. What they don't mention is how we learned. No one learns to ride a bike from a book, or even a video. You learn by doing it. Actually, by not doing it. You learn by doing it wrong, by falling off, by getting back on, by doing it again."
