March is Community Association Awareness Month

space
We get to spend a whole month showcasing these volunteer-run organizations that offer so much to our city!

As way to celebrate the hard work and dedication of community associations, we have connected with our community partners and supporters to bring awareness to the great work community associations do and how YOU can be part of it to help make Calgary’s communities that much better.

This page will be constantly updated throughout the month, so come make sure to check back!

Faces of Community

We launched the Faces of Community during last year’s March Community Association Awareness Month, to highlight the many different faces of community volunteers across our city. We often hear that Calgarians don’t realize that their community association is run by volunteers from the community, and so Faces of Community helps tell the story of just some of the more than 20,000 community volunteers in Calgary who are donating their time each and every day to help improve neighbourhood life in Calgary.

Nominated by their peers, the twelve 2018 Faces of Community come from community organizations across the city, and all have different and inspiring stories of how they got involved, what they’re proud of, and what motivates them to stay involved.
