The Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion (HCCI) is offering a free workshop series on non-profit governance this fall. The workshops are being held in response to the growing issue of capacity building within the non-profit sector and among new and emerging informal sectors.


The six-session series will begin on Tuesday, October 16. Titled “Strategic Topic and Leadership Styles”, the workshop will provide novice and experienced board members with insight into their responsibilities and tools to strengthen their contributions. Participants can select sessions that appeal to them or sign up for the full series.


“We know that community groups are being created across the city on a regular basis, but we also know that some of them are looking for capacity building supports to help them become more sustainable,” said Evelyn Myrie, HCCI executive director. “HCCI is committed to facilitating leadership among diverse cultural communities in order to strengthen their participation in all aspects of community life.”


HCCI is particularly interested in reaching new and emerging organizations from Hamilton’s ethno-cultural communities and groups that provide support to newcomers to the city, including faith-based groups.


The full workshop listing is:

  • October 16, 2013        Strategic Topic and Leadership Styles
