The VICA U40 Network has two separate functions each month:
Leadership Meetings: Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings. The purpose is to discuss upcoming programming, as well as to plan and shape the committee.
Networking & Professional Development Events: All U40 network members are encouraged to attend. These events vary by month and they will focus on fulfilling our mandate.
