From Yellowknife to Iqaluit, and from Ecuador to Ireland, face-to-face meetings at conferences, workshops, forums and dialogues allow for fruitful and often surprising exchanges, leading to new alliances, sparking linkages, inspiring partnerships. We particularly benefit from the help of our NCCAH advisory committee members, who generously continue to provide their expertise and leadership on behalf of the NCCAH at a variety of events and deliberations across the country and internationally. The NCCAH is grateful for their contributions and continues to rely on the expertise and guidance of all committee members.
