Immigrant Welcome Centre to unveil Diversity Ambassador

And serve up a great potluck as well at Campbell River organization's AGM

The Immigrant Welcome Centre (Multicultural and Immigrant Services Association of North Vancouver Island) is inviting all members, clients and community partners to join them at their Annual General Meeting and Potluck Dinner coming up on Sept. 22.

“For the Immigrant Welcome Centre this event is a kick off for our fall programs and a chance for board members, staff, community partners, our members and our clients to get together and get to know each other a bit better over a potluck dinner,” says interim Executive Director Jim Brennan. “We always try to keep the business portion as brief as possible but one of the highlights will be presenting our Diversity Ambassador Award.”

The support and participation of members is also important to the AGM, according to board President Patricia Gagnon.

“As a registered not-for-profit organization, our members play a significant part in carrying forward our mission. We couldn’t do it without them,” she says.

The Immigrant Welcome Centre provides settlement and integration services for all immigrants, both English-speaking and non-English-speaking to make communities throughout the North Island region welcoming to all.

Memberships start at just $10 for individuals and will be available at the door. The AGM and potluck dinner takes place Tuesday Sept. 22 at the Robron Centre in Campbell River. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The meeting takes place from 7 to 8 p.m.  To participate, register by calling 250-830-0171 and bring a dish of food to share.
