Being a Community Builder is Good for Business

Nov 29, 2018

On Tuesday, November 20, 2018, we held our second annual Giving Tuesday Luncheon at the Radisson Hotel in Red Deer. This year, our speaker was Russ Dahms. He is the Executive Director of the Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations.

Russ has been leading ECVO’s growth and development since 2007. Under his leadership, ECVO has focused on strengthening the nonprofit sector through fostering, building and creating sustainable partnerships and providing valuable services to our members. Russ has also overseen the expansion of ECVO as a communicator and network hub, as well as the evolution of relationships between the organization and leaders in the nonprofit, government and business communities.

The nonprofit sector is critical to Alberta: as an economic driver, as stewards of Alberta’s collective well-being, and as innovators.  The sector stimulates community cohesion; it builds a sense of belonging and brings people together. The sector matters to Albertans and is largely responsible for improving the quality of life in every community in the province.
