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. 


Curious about sponsoring an event?

Sponsorship varies and includes:

  • Logo in email marketing;
  • Logo on the registration page;
  • Option to speak for five (5) minutes at the start of the meeting; and
  • Option to distribute promo or marketing information to attendees.
