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.

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.
