INSPIRE : ENERGISE : CONNECT
We’d like to let you know about a new series of events to inspire, energise and connect our CanAct community members.
Called CanAct Conversations, this initiative follows on from the success of Unite 4 Change event in May 2012 and the enthusiasm for more opportunities to connect with each other and learn about other campaigns.
CanAct Conversations will bring together our CanAct Community members with various special guests to hear a presentation on a topic of interest and provide an opportunity to catch up on each other’s latest adventures and achievements!
We also welcome friends and family along to our conversations. These events are a great opportunity for people not already connected to our advocacy efforts, to meet other like minded people and find out more about what we do!
Currently, we are only running these events out of our Sydney office. However, if they prove to be popular, we will explore options for making them more widely accessible.

RSVP: By 22 May to firstname.lastname@example.org

Meagan and Kelly first presented this session at Unite 4 Change in May 2012. Due to the positive feedback we received at the event, we decided to provide our CanAct Community with another opportunity to benefit from their experience and insights when it comes to campaign planning.
Using real case studies, we will chat about how change happens and look at the typical stages in taking an issue and developing a campaign to achieve your goals.
