Learning in your Pajamas

If you are a member of the Oliver Community Arts Council or one of its member groups, and you want to improve the effectiveness of your arts and culture organization, you are invited to register for two FREE seminars courtesy of ArtsBC.  They are “webinars” – seminars on the Web. You can attend while in your own home in your PJs!

Each seminar lasts one hour, using your computer Internet connection and a toll-free phone number to link with the guest speaker and other participants across BC.  Watch a Powerpoint presentation, view the speaker, chat with other participants, ask questions. No webcam or speakers required.

One has already been held, but all three seminars are independent.  Notes and documents will be available from the first seminar, “Creating an Effective Board”. 

The remaining two “webinars” are:

Including these topics: Benefits to planning, Who should be involved in planning, Barriers to successful planning, and a Planning document checklist
