“Building people to people connections”

From the Delegates' Booklet:

You will move the organization forward by Building People to People Connections. As the conference theme, this represents the importance of using our time at the conference to strengthen connections between our in-Canada and African Programs. We also must make sure that we leave the conference with a stronger network of social change leaders than we have ever had before.

"Building People to People Connections" is a theme for more than the conference. It is a theme for our whole organization, as expressed through our newly articulated organizational values. It is clearly expressed through the value "Invest in People" and implicitly present throughout as we affirm the importance of being open to new ideas, having the courage to ask for feedback, and asking tough questions. Not only do these values define our organization, they should define this conference. We hope you experience these values first hand as you build connections and work together during NC2010.
