HCF is thrilled to be hosting the Board of Community Foundations of Canada on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week. In addition to conducting CFC board meetings there will be a busy schedule of things happening in Hamilton. This afternoon we will be in the Beasley neighbourhood with officials from Benjamin Moore for a media conference announcing community grants for paint and expert help for community organizations doing neighbourhood improvement work.
Tomorrow the CFC Annual General Meeting will feature a keynote address by Trivaris CEO and volunteer extrordinaire Mark Chamberlain, talking about the importance of community foundation leadership to community change across Canada. The CFC Board will also be saying goodbye to our friend Vincie Travale, who will be leaving the Board after many years of distinguished service to the community foundation movement both nationally and here in Hamilton. Thanks Vincie, for all that you have done!
