CCEDNet is driven by its members. From the Board, to EconoUs, and in all our projects, members set the direction and contribute to the Network’s shared goals.
Currently, three CCEDNet working groups are welcoming new members.
CCEDNet’s Policy Council is the main body that monitors federal, provincial and municipal policy developments across the country to align and support the policy efforts of our members and identify opportunities where CCEDNet can advance strategic policy priorities. Our Communities Agenda, our most recent federal pre-budget brief, and a letter to key ministers in support of a Social Innovation and Social Finance Strategy for Canada are some examples of Policy Council initiatives. The Policy Council meets quarterly, online, for 90 minutes. Reach out to Marianne Jurzyniec, Policy Council Chair, at Marianne.Jurzyniec at Affinitycu.ca for more info.
The CED / Social Solidarity Economy and 2030 Agenda working group is a new initiative to identify ways that CCEDNet members can promote and encourage action around the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The workplan for this group is still in development and can be adapted to members’ interests and availabilities. Find out more and get involved here.
CCEDNet’s Board recently formed a Membership Engagement Committee to look at how to strengthen member engagement across all of CCEDNet’s activities. The Committee will likely meet 4-6 times per year with email discussions between meetings. If you’d like to find out more or get involved, contact Ryan Gibson at ryan_gibson at live.com
The leadership and contributions of CCEDNet’s members are at the heart of the Network. This is your invitation to join others to accelerate the change we seek together. Join us!
