Participating in SVI: Alberta

Can I attend only part of SVI: Alberta?

In short, no. SVI: Alberta is intended as an immersive experience that fosters networking, collaboration, and community support. These benefits are only fully realized through the full participation of all attendees.

What kind of experience can I expect to have?

SVI: Alberta is a unique hybrid of conference, retreat, social gathering, and coming together of those on the forefront of social ventures in Alberta. You'll want to set up your out of office. Expect to learn, to be challenged, and to expand your ideas of what's possible through this intensive experience.
