In November 2008, the Marine Conservation Caucus (MCC) hosted a one-day workshop to discuss a variety of issues concerning marine and freshwater conservation in BC and to explore ways to strengthen collaboration amongst the ENGO community.  Participants unanimously recommended the MCC find new ways to help share information and provide networking opportunities among conservation groups. To that end, the MCC is exploring the use of web conferencing as an efficient and cost-effective means to connect people to discuss issues of importance.

Please take a moment to complete this short survey, and share the link (www.eplyevents.com/mcc2011survey) with others, to help us make our planned outreach more effective.  The closing date for the survey is March 15, 2011.
