With their research just about ready for the public, the Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta (CFSEA) is thrilled to invite community leaders, stakeholders, and residents of the Southeastern Alberta region to join us for the launch of the Vital Signs report.
Vital Signs is a yearly project for the foundation, which serves as a check-up and helps them align their goals for the coming year as to where their funds would best be used while handing out grants.
This will be the first year that the report highlights significant trends in rural communities throughout the southeast Alberta region, said CFSEA in a press release, and they aim to spark conversation about significant social and economic trends to tell the story of how the community of the southeast corner is faring in several quality-of-life areas.
“Additionally, CFSEA will be announcing the 2023 Vital People Award recipients. The Vital People Award aims to recognize and encourage staff and volunteers working in front-line program delivery for local charities,” said CFSEA. “The program supports these leaders in our community by investing in their success through two $500 awards to assist in professional development opportunities. Nominations are accepted from executive directors and senior managers of registered charitable organizations.”
The publication will be launched on October 30, at the Vital Signs Event from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at McNally’s Tap House (Ballroom in the Beveridge Building, Medicine Hat) said CFSEA, and those interested are encouraged to register by purchasing a ticket on Eventbrite for the occasion.
