What is this workshop about?

What will you learn during the workshop?

- The core principals of a Microboard
- The core values, principles and practices of circles of support
Purpose of a Microboard
“Microboards” are focused on identifying the needs of an individual person. They do this through relationship building, but members of the board are accountable for all legal responsibilities and functions of incorporated associations. Depending on a person’s particular needs, a Microboard’s active role can include assisting with coordinating support services, finding and keeping employment, and facilitating friendships and social community.
