ANNUAL NATIONAL FORMATION
>>> Register your workshop or your table at the Live Chat Room <<<
We are excited to invite you to the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Annual National Formation (ANF) to be held in Ottawa on June 17 and 18, 2022 at Carleton University.
The theme for the 2022 ANF is HUNGER; this theme covers hunger on different levels, such as hunger for spirituality, human contact, the continuity of SSVP as well as the hunger we address in our communities related to food insecurities.
We are offering multiple workshops in French and English and a Live Chat Room for an opportunity to exchange ideas and enter into conversations with our fellow Vincentians on their initiatives. We are also pleased to offer a plenary session with a keynote speaker (TBA). The theme of HUNGER will be a thread that runs throughout the two-day event.
The Live Chat Room / Exposition Hall is a forum where members, conferences or councils can identify a topic for discussion or share their successful initiatives/projects with other Vincentians. Please reserve a spot at the LIVE CHAT ROOM to present your initiative or project by filling this SUBMISSION FORM.
Workshops are typically 75 minutes long, to include presentation with a question and answer period. Presenters must provide their own presentation material. Please submit your WORKSHOP proposal by filling this SUBMISSION FORM.
PLEASE SUBMIT BY APRIL 30.
This in-person event is long-awaited after our hibernation over the last two years. Our hope is to create an inspiring and uplifting event in which we can once again network and enjoy each other’s company and wisdom. We hope to see you there.
National Formation Committee
Please note that at the March 26 National Council board meeting, it was decided to have the statutory meeting, a.k.a. as the Annual General Assembly (AGA), at a later date.
