Peer Sharing and Networking
We host a variety of peer sharing events annually to provide opportunities for knowledge exchange, community collaboration and relationship building. All of our networking events are provided free of charge and include refreshments/lunch (depending on time of day).
Title: Indigenous Gathering
This gathering is an interactive one-day retreat aimed at providing an opportunity for Indigenous leaders to share successes and challenges in the areas of physical activity, sport, arts/culture and recreation, and to spark new relationships with other communities! Increase your knowledge of programming, policies, event planning, youth engagement, and budgeting.
When: September TBD
Our annual forum for recreation professionals! This event is the only face to face networking forum in the south east that provides you with direct access to professionals in your field. You can ask peers questions about recreation and for professional advice! And we provide lunch and refreshments! And it is free to attend!
When: Thursday, November 7, 2019 AJM Davies Arena, Indian Head, 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.
Title: New Professionals
At South East District, we recognize the diversity of professionals working in the recreation, sport and culture sector! We believe that supporting a strong diverse workforce means providing an informative and welcoming environment for those new to the sector. We also believe that mentorship and progressive learning opportunities are important for professionals within the first couple years of their career! Talk to us about our New Recreation Practitioner Resource Starter Kit and Mentorship Program (we match you up for a one-day networking meeting with a mentor, where you have a chance to learn from the best!).
