Originally formed in 1990 as a Mayors’ Committee on Social Planning, the Comox Valley Social Planning Society acquired Society status in 1996.
Its goals are to gather information on human services, raise awareness by identifying gaps and overlaps in services, and to facilitate community education on existing services and new service development.
Since its formation, the Society has researched and published three Quality of Life Reports for the Comox Valley: 2002, 2004 and 2009. It is in the process of researching an update to the 2009 Report.
The CVSPS will host its annual Inter-Agency Up-Dates Brown Bag Lunch on Nov. 5.
All agencies, community groups, non-profits and interested individuals are welcome to attend this valuable cross-sector meeting, updating others on what challenges and successes your group is experiencing — sort of a three-minute state-of-the-union round-robin from your group’s perspective.
The BBL will be held from noon until 1:30 at the Courtenay Recreation Lewis Centre in the meeting room. Bring your lunch. Coffee and juice will be provided.
To RSVP or for more information, call 250-335-2003 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
