Dedicated, diverse and involved

The EFCL staff is dedicated to the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues and to the community league movement. Each brings considerable skills, expertise and experience to their jobs that benefit both the EFCL and the community leagues.
They are active with their own community leagues, either holding a board position, involved in a committee or volunteering to help at events as needed. This enables them to stay connected with what is important to leagues and how they, in their role as EFCL staff, can improve the support systems that are in place for leagues and their continued growth.
You can always reach us by email, or come visit us at 7103-105 St., Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or phone 780-437-2913.
