Living Wage Leaders
Community of Practice

Next Meeting

Date: January 30, 2017

Topic:  In the first call of the new year, we will review our Community of Practice Terms of Reference, discuss priority areas for learning and professional development, and collectively set our 2017 learning agenda. Please come to the call ready to discuss your ideas for topics and/or potential speakers.

We love learning from our group members! If there is a particular topic you have experience in, and would like to share your lessons with other municipal peers, please contact Natasha to inquire about leading an upcoming discussion.
