Updates from the Board
We would like to take this opportunity to share with you that following endorsement from a quorum of Forum members we are now called International Forum for Volunteering in Development aligning more closely with the French translation of the name, Forum International du Volontariat pour le Développement. Forum’s incorporation under the ‘Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act’ was confirmed on the 26th April, 2013.
The Forum Board convened 10th-12th April in Paris, and the meeting was generously hosted by France-Volontaires. Planning of IVCO 2013 was one of the main agenda items, and members will shortly receive further information about this year’s program along with an invitation to send proposals for workshops and activities. Other follow up items from Forum’s Strategic Plan 2013-15 at the Board meeting included strengthened membership, communication and financial resources.
