Microboard Mingle (Lower Mainland) May 2019

You are invited to an informal get together to talk about Microboards with other Microboards. Attendees are encouraged to share what works for their Microboard while learning from others. 
 
We held our first Microboard Mingle on February 9, 2019. Nellie Wong, the mom of a woman that has had a Microboard for 20 years, was the generator of this idea. The day was a resounding success. As a result, the group in attendance decided they would like to continue to meet every few months to continue to share ideas and work on collective solutions.
 

Topics to Discuss (but not limited to):

- Staffing
- What are the stumbling blocks?
- The advantages to having a Microboard
- Making funding “stretch”
- Finding and obtaining services
- Tricks to making the Microboard run smoothly
