Calgary Compass

AFP Calgary & Area is dedicated to providing relevant professional development opportunities to its members. As part of this, our chapter offers a conference annually alternating between Calgary Compass and Banff Compass. 2018 will feature Calgary Compass and please come back in the new year for more information.  We hope to see you there. 

Calgary Compass

Calgary Compass is a bi-annual one day workshop designed to provide affordable professional development for members of AFP Calgary and Area chapter, along with other stakeholders within the not-for-profit sector.

 This year we look at Disruptive Philanthropy in a changing world. We know that our economy, our sector, industry, and demographics are changing rapidly. This one day conference will bring together nationally and internationally acclaimed leaders in the field of philanthropy, corporate and community engagement, and economic development. We will look at how our sector can survive and even thrive in a challenging climate. Learning to build and leverage productive partnerships, and innovate for a bright future together. 

Along with our full day of sessions, there will be a two-hour conversation building on the Calgary Compass theme of Disruptive Philanthropy. A 30-minute panel discussion will kick-off your generative small group conversations about Disruptive Innovation – a Corporate-Community Imperative. At this session, participants will explore and develop some new ways of working and collaborating in our disruptive, ever-changing world of community building. (And we’ll serve lunch).

This year’s conference promises to push boundaries, inspire discussion, and create new opportunities for collaboration to grow both the for-profit, and not-for-profit sectors.
