POSTPONED : So you have decided to be a candidate ...


It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone the upcoming training to the new year. Part of the hope of the training was to build a community of practice in and around the Fraser Valley for the upcoming municipal elections. However, we feel with the recent devastating floods that many people have more pressing issues that they will need to focus on.

We will develop some shorter training modules that people be able to access at their convenience over the coming weeks and months. Some of these modules will cover topics that we were going to address in the course next weekend. We will share these modules as they become available.

We will also send out details of the rescheduled course as soon as we set a date. We sincerely hope that you your family and friends are safe during these difficult times.

In Solidarity,

The CLC and Winch Teams.
