Leagues Alive Conference resources

One of the key mandates of the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues is to provide effective knowledge to our community league boards to support their roles as the grassroots government of their communities. To achieve this, the EFCL hosts an annual Leagues Alive conference and strives to ensure each conference is filled with relevant sessions and workshops that are of value to our league volunteers in their capacity as community leaders.


Topics can be broad ranging, from the importance of everyone on a board knowing how their league's financials are doing to how a small gesture of thanks reminds volunteers how valued they are. Other topics might include social media and how to make it work for leagues, the importance of community-wide engagement, program development, growing memberships, retaining volunteers, learning how to make leagues more inclusive and why those pesky development permits and city notices shouldn't be ignored. 


Each year, the range of session topics change as the needs of leagues change, so there is always something new to learn.


Whenever possible, the EFCL gathers presenters’ packages to create a resource guide that is useful for all members of community league boards. Please click on the Leagues Alive Resources folder below to get you started.
