There are many ways for members to make a contribution to the work of IIWR-MB.
We encourage participation by all our members on committees if they wish, or to represent IIWR-Manitoba in community activities. Examples of committees are the Advocacy Committee, Communications Committee, Program Committee and the Event Committee. An example of outside representation would be sitting on the Winnipeg UN Safe Cities Steering Committee. If you are interested in becoming involved on the Board, or on a Committee, please contact us.
Everyone is welcome to participate in our programs and events. For more on what is happening, visit our Events Calendar .
