Evaluate to Celebrate

Evaluate to Celebrate: Thrive’s First Annual Community Reflections Gathering

Its been almost a full year since Thrive launched its strategic map, and now we want to know: How are we doing?

We began truly organizing ourselves like a network and are wondering: What relationships and resources have you developed as a result?

We hosted several learning events and would like to know: How are these gatherings helping you do your work better?

Please join us on Thursday, December 15th at The Headspace for an afternoon of looking back as we reflect on your year of participation in Thrive: Calgary’s Community Economic Development Network. The learning from this day will help us update our strategic map and refine our work so that we can be that much better!

One of the goals of this event is to update our Strategic Map. If you haven’t read it in a while, or ever, you can download and read our 2011-2013 Strategic Map here.

Here is a brief outline of what we have planned for the afternoon:

  • 1pm – Summary of this year’s work and what has been accomplished
  • 1:30-4pm – Gathering your reflections and stories of participation in Thrive
  • 4pm onwards – If you can, please stay for a celebration reception (mingle and enjoy delicious food and refreshments as we wind down a busy year)
Please RSVP by December 9th. Register here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
