Civic engagement can improve our communities and strengthen community vitality. It is an ongoing process that is important to be nurtured over the long term. Join us for a Big Exchange discussion on how to take action on opportunities, engage a wide swath of the community and build your community for the future. Our next discussion will be led by Jackie Northey and Leslie Sim on September 30, 2020, 7-9 mst.
Leslie Sim has over 15 years of executive experience in leading organizations toward innovative transformation through cultural change and leveraging information and technology. She helps organizations define the visions, strategies and coaches them in creating the operational culture to be successful.
Jackie Northey is a community influencer and Bashaw Adult Learning Council leader. Despite her prediction that her life was over, Jackie Northey was transplanted to Rural Alberta with her siblings and parents at the age of 14 when her father purchased a farm in his small hometown community. Four years later at the age of 18, Jackie started her 44 year serial volunteer habit. Jackie volunteers, engages and advocates for rural and agricultural communities and organizations nationally, provincially and regionally. Her extensive experience includes adult education, strategic planning, capacity building, rural development, communications and non-profit governance. Jackie oversees programs and strategy, leading organizations forward by facilitating transformative thinking and discussion. Jackie and her husband still reside in Bashaw, with a strong conviction of the importance of family and community, never more evident than watching their own children raise their young families in the community as well.
This next Big Exchange will take place on September 30, 2020, 7-9 pm mst.
