The demand for LifeRing meetings on Vancouver Island continues to exceed our capacity of volunteers. Our next FREE Convenor Workshop is coming up on June 1st and 2nd, 2013 and will take place here in Victoria.

Perhaps you would like to start your own group in the community or at an existing agency? We''ll help you do that! Maybe you just want to help us run existing ones. That is fine also.

Please see attached flyer and connect with our Convenor Coordinator for more information on how to get involved.
