Very useful and timely information. I’m appreciating the expertise of the presenters and their openness and willingness to share it with us.”

“Having attended for a number of years, I felt like the caliber of presenters was higher which may be attributed to bringing people in from other locales.Excellent offering of workshops for people new to the sector and those of us who have worked in the sector for some time. Great job!”

Excellent conference. All relevant and timely session contents. Food and accommodation was great!

This was one of the most engaging conferences in Canada. At the same calibur as the provincial non-profit conference or food bank association conference in Ontario. Very engaging.
