The Circle for Aboriginal Relations Society (CFAR) will be hosting our annual conference Conversational Leadership: These Are Our Stories June 13 and 14, and is issuing this call for papers for all interested speakers and workshop leaders that wish to contribute to the various conference streams.
CFAR is committed “To provide leadership in Aboriginal, government and industry relations by creating a circle to foster a broad understanding of different perspectives. CFAR facilitates the development of trust, respect and credibility among our membership and with others.”
The Circle for Aboriginal Relations (CFAR) is a registered non-profit, non-partisan Society of professionals from diverse backgrounds who work within Aboriginal relations groups in communities, governments and industries. CFAR was created in 2006 at a workshop attended by forty liaison professionals with significant experience in Aboriginal relations. As a non-profit society, CFAR has been able to remain a front runner in addressing issues faced by Aboriginal relations liaisons through the generous support of our sponsors and members. Our success is your success: networking and sharing knowledge is the key to understanding and to building sustainable relationships. Join us today!
