Tourism Vancouver was proud to be the Corporate Social Responsibility sponsor for Association Forum's annual conference, Forum Forward.

Forum Forward is a one-day conference that educates meeting planners on how to elevate their programs in order to improve engagement as well as ensure financial success. Along with visionary speakers and networking, attendees also had the opportunity to learn about incorporating CSR into their meetings.

Vancouver's very own Rachael Riggs gave tips to many association professionals throughout the day. One topic was how Tourism Vancouver created the #VanGiving program to ensure that meetings are able to leave behind a legacy that positively impacts the quality of life for local residents. Along with the rest of the Vancouver partners, attendees filled 750 Clean the World Hygiene Kits for the YMCA of Metro Chicago. Thank you to everyone who came by the CSR pavilion to help us pack these kits!

If you're interested in learning more about how you can add an aspect of CSR into your meeting, please contact Rachael Riggs.
