News Registration open for Council’s online Annual Membership & Business Meeting

This year the Providers’ Council will be hosting its Annual Membership & Business Meeting in an online format via Zoom on Wednesday, April 7.

Registration for this members-only event closes April 5 and space is limited, so make sure you reserve your spot today.

The Annual Membership & Business Meeting will take place from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and will be followed by a panel discussion from noon-1:30 p.m.: Untapped Talent: Supporting Career Development Needs of the BIPOC and Foreign-Born Workforce. This forum will focus on efforts and strategies to support foreign-born and BIPOC staff’s career development in the community human service industry. The panel will include perspectives from advocates, employers and employees. Join us to learn more about these agencies’ experiences, share your agency’s efforts and imagine together what is possible in supporting more BIPOC into leadership roles in the human service industry.

Panelists:

  • Emmanuel Owusu, Executive Director, African Bridge Network
  • Jule Gomes Noack, President and CEO, HMEA
  • Peter Obour-Mensah, Manager, Baycove Housing Support Program
  • Evans Chiyombwe, Senior Program Director, Victory Human Services
  • Hillary Bradburn, Education Manager, International Institute of New England

This panel will be moderated by Pam Sampson, Chief Program Officer, Venture Community Services

The Council is excited to advance the education of some of the most dedicated workers in the sector. This year, all net proceeds from this event will go directly towards our 2021 Foreign-Born Student Scholarship and support a dedicated human service employee in furthering their education.

In order to ensure all members are able to participate we are limiting registration to two representatives per agency. A recording of the meeting will be available following the event. Please remember that we will not be voting during this event as votes were submitted prior through the 2021 Proxy Form.

Please register here for the Annual Membership and Business Meeting and direct any questions to Eliza Adams.
