Thank you to everyone who attended a recent ACIC networking meeting held in Charlottetown on Monday, August 26th. There was a great turn-out, with the following member organizations represented:
- Cuso International
- CUPE Global Social Justice Committee
- Farmers Helping Farmers
- International Sustainable Community Assistance
- The Cooper Institute
Other individuals with an interest in international cooperation were also present and contributed to the discussion, particularly on how to engage youth in our work. ACIC will soon be submitting a proposal to DFATD for continued funding to support member capacity building and public engagement in Atlantic Canada. Over the past number of months, ACIC members have contributed ideas by way of member surveys, participation at our June symposium workshop and, most recently, as part of the PEI meeting. If for any reason you were unable to attend, we encourage you to provide input as we prepare to put these ideas into action by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thanks again to all those who attended! We look forward to seeing you at the next PEI networking event!
