Upcoming seminar to look at re-engaging community using volunteers

Offering from South West District for Culture, Recreation and Sport to look at building community post-pandemic
Without question, the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on community organizations and groups all over Saskatchewan.

The question now is what can be done to help get back on track as things gradually return to normal in the province?

An upcoming webinar from the South West District for Culture, Recreation and Sport will look at finding a solution, and it’s one that is often key to the success of any organization: volunteering.

The Using Volunteering to Re-Engage Community Post-Pandemic seminar will take place via the Zoom app and will feature 75 minutes of sharing ideas and brainstorming on how attendees might use volunteers to help their groups return to their previous levels of community prominence.

The webinar will feature Lara Schroeder from Spark Solutions as facilitator, and she’ll offer  insight from her years of offering sport management consulting for a wide range of organizations and events, including the 2014 Winter Olympics and numerous Youth Olympic Games — all heavily volunteer-driven events.

The event will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and is free of charge. You can register by visiting, with the registration deadline 12 p.m. on Aug. 9. Links to join the workshop will be e-mailed a few days prior to the event.
