After April’s event, many people offered high praise: “The best networking event I have been to in 30 years,” said Shefali Raja of the Fraser Health Authority.

“There was an emerging camaraderie among the non-profits that attended,” commented Allan Thain, artistic director of Bard in the Valley.

“Great to meet people in organizations that I knew little about,” said Dorothy McKim, of the Ishtar Transition Housing Society.

“Almost everyone I connected with will be beneficial to network with for the Action Table,” added Carla Robin, the co-ordinator for the Langley Seniors Community Association Table.
