Luncheon discussion session planned for Leduc

March 22, 2017 by  

Public service agencies, individuals and community-based organizations meet the needs of people from throughout Leduc, and during an upcoming event, representatives from these different groups will have a chance to come together for the benefit of all of them.

The Interagency Brown Bag Session will bring together spokespeople in an collaborative environment where they can network, share best practices and discuss issues that can affect all of them. Those who come are encouraged to bring along their lunch and be ready to meet with people who can help them to help others. The speakers for the event will be from Money Mentors and the Office of the Child and Youth Advocate.

A secondary benefit to attending the event is that it will give agencies and organizations an opportunity to learn more about other groups in the area and what they do. This can help to prevent duplication of services, and make sure that the needs of people from across the community are being met and there are no gaps in this social safety net. Those who organize a function such as this can use the services of stationery printers to provide them with customized memo pads that can be distributed to each person who participates.

The Interagency Brown Bag session has been planned for April 20 in the Lede Room B of the Leduc Civic Centre. It will run from 11:45 am until 12:45 pm, and representatives from all of the area’s community service organizations are highly encouraged to attend.
