If only I had a magic wand…

Posted by: in North West

Seasons are Changing

Fall is my most favorite time of the year with all the the vibrant colors of orange and yellow. The month of September is historically warm. At the same time though, mother nature is teasing us with snow in the mountains and windy days – just to let us know that winter is just around the corner.

As your RCC’s, we will not let grass grow under our feet.

Last week we celebrated the official launch of the KC website and this week we have “steamed ahead” in our regions. We are continuing to encourage the volunteer and non-profit sector to use the new features on our site to help identify your strengths and gap areas through the online self assessment to link you to posted learning opportunities to enhance your individual leaning plan.

We are “big picture thinkers…” (which just happens to be one of the six competencies of the ASK assessment tool). We are always looking forward to new and exciting opportunities.  Volunteer Alberta and KnowledgeConnector staff are currently working on phase two. What does that look like you ask?  Well opportunities are endless but we need to focus on; what are the on the needs and gap areas in providing volunteers and leaders throughout rural Alberta with services and support  to help them be the most effective leaders.

So this is where you come in, we need your feedback and input;

– What drives you or your passion to become a volunteer?

– What are three barriers to volunteering in Rural Alberta?

– What do you see as our role in rural Alberta (Regional Capacity Coordinator – RCC’s)?

– Do you see value in having support from RCC’s (Volunteer Alberta) through out Rural Alberta?

– How can we better support you and your organization to meet your learning needs?

We do not have a crystal ball or a magic wand, so your feedback is important to us in order to move forward. Phase two of KnowledgeConnector can be what ever you would like  it to be… Change begins with you!

So please send your comments, suggestions or ideas to me at
