Upcoming Conferences and Seminars

 November 1 – 4,  Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA) is holding their annual convention. It may appeal to those in Business, PACS and/or International Development as an opportunity to network and learn in the context of a business community that takes faith seriously. It is also an organization that is on the cutting edge of development with many projects that focus on micro-finance in the global south. MEDA and Conrad Grebel are offering support to 4 students to attend. Contact Student Services rep Pam Bartell at pbartel@uwaterloo.ca.

February 14 – 16, Mennonite Central Committee’s Ottawa Office is running their annual Advocacy Student Seminar. This one is entitled “Peacebuilding in a Dangerous Time”. More details and registration can be found here: http://mccottawa.ca/student-seminar. I went to the 2011 seminar and can safely say it was one of the best events I’ve ever attended…
