Vantage Point

Partners in Innovative Programming

We know that good governance is essential in building sustainable community organizations that’s why we partner with Vantage Point to bring innovative programming like Governance Lab and Leader’s Lab to the Fraser Valley.

This year, in support of our Feed the Valley program, we’re proud to involve Food Banks BC and its 96 food banks across the province in our partnership. Vantage Point has assembled a custom webinar series designed to address topics like: board roles and responsibilities, board design and sustainability, volunteer and employee engagement, finance essentials and client privacy just to name a few. Available to all food bank board members, staff and volunteers, these webinars will form part of Food Banks BC professional development offering to its affiliate members.

“This partnership provides food bank leaders across B.C. with essential professional development and learning opportunities that would otherwise be challenging to afford because our funds are directed toward fighting hunger,” says Laura Lansink, executive director of Food Banks BC. “We’re grateful for these tools because it means our leaders gain expert advice and relevant education to help them ensure that volunteers, staff and boards are fully trained to serve their communities.”
