Virtual Event Highlights
Thank You to all our Attendees, Speakers, Sponsors and Organizers!
On November 12 & 13, BC Association for Charitable Gaming (BCACG) & Volunteer BC hosted a virtual conference. We weren’t together in-person, but we offered a high-quality event filled with inspiring keynotes and impactful workshops designed to navigate the challenging landscape, volunteers, non-profits and charities are experiencing during COVID-19.
We had 1 Keynote, 4 Breakout Rooms and 13 Sessions to choose from! Topics included Updates to the Community Gaming Grant, Grant-seeking in 2020, Inclusive to Intercultural Leadership to Artificial Intelligence – there was alot to learn from these incredible speakers.
BIG THANKS to our presenters – Terry Clark, Carmen Hildebrand, Stephanie Moore & Carrera Teal, Amber MacMillan, Matthias Klenk, Shagun Bhanot, Jennifer Barnes van Elk, Michael McEvoy, Melissa Bilko, Community Gaming Branch Staff, Randy Wright, Lisa Mort-Putland & Bruce MacDonald, CEO Imagine Canada
And big thanks to our Breakout Room Hosts – Olga Stachova, Nate Toevs, Kelina Kwan, Rita Innamorati, Anne-Marie Koeppen (Volunteer BC-Vice-Chair)
Here’s Some Favourite Moments from #VFBS2020
Keynote Bruce MacDonald, CEO Imagine Canada – kicked off the conference and shared with us that it’s not all DOOM & GLOOM for the sector – there are opportunities ahead of us in 2021!
The biggest take-away from his presentation – It is a MARATHON but feels more like a SPRINT – You must take care of YOURSELF, your staff & volunteers – to help you get through this challenging time.
Gaming Grants Update: Gaming Grant Branch Staff provided updates to the program along with Covid-19 related info.
