The Community Ambassadors are pleased to announce our annual networking event!

The Community Ambassadors aim to help non-profit organizations, ranging from small to large and complex, by helping them connect with the skills-based volunteers they need.  These sectors include poverty reduction, health, and support for children, addictions recovery, the arts, animals, and the environment.

Over the past five years, the Community Ambassadors has grown into something amazing. Our initial goal was to connect Chartered Professional Accounts with non-profit groups in Calgary, and we expanded to Edmonton in 2016. We have helped numerous charities find qualified volunteers, and we are very proud of this accomplishment.

The Community Ambassadors host annual networking events in both Calgary and Edmonton.  The goal for these events is to facilitate networking between CPA members and the non-profit sector.  We also incorporate a short speaking engagement, where attendees will hear from both CPAs and NPOs from the Calgary area, who have benefitted from volunteering and the Community Ambassadors’ initiatives.
