A new partnership between the Volunteer Services Bureau and the Grande Prairie Sport Council was solidified this week. A memorandum of understand was signed by representatives from both groups.
VSB executive director Carol-Anne Pasemko says that the official partnership will continue until 2019.
“Its based on shared resources, shared information and the promotion of each agency.”
While the groups have worked together since the sport council’s beginning Executive Director Karna Germshied says it was a natural progression.
“We can leverage each other. We can use the professional courses they already teach which are totally relevant to our community and they can use an increased network of volunteers as well.”
Now all sport council members will have access to most of the services offered by the Volunteer Services Bureau including meeting space, board development and equipment.
