L'AQOCI donne suite à l'approche de financement de l'ACDI avec des pistes d'actions concrètes
L’ACDI a récemment adopté une nouvelle approche de financement des partenariats avec les OCIs qui pourrait avoir des conséquences importantes sur les actions d’engagement du public et le financement des organisations. Suite à la réflexion faite avec ses membres, l’AQOCI vous propose de discuter ensemble des pistes d’action concrètes qui seront adoptées face à cette politique. L’AQOCI tiendra donc une conférence téléphonique le 30 novembre à 12pm à ce sujet. Notre directeur Gervais l’Heureux et Amélie Nguyen (analyste) vous présenteront les priorités identifiées par le conseil d’administration de l’AQOCI suite aux sessions de travail et la manière pour les membres de participer à ces actions communes. Pour participer veuillez communiquer avec Amélie à l’adresse suivante ou au 514 871 1086 poste 210.
