Peer Sharing and Networking

Peer sharing sessions and networking gatherings offer participants the opportunity for mutual learning with others working in areas of sport, culture and recreation by sharing best practices, lessons learned, knowledge, experience and resources.

Southeast Connection works with local community organizations and groups to plan and co-host regional gatherings across the south east that meet the needs of the district’s communities. While these unique events differ in their format and topic, all take a sport, culture or recreation perspective, facilitate local connections and provide an interactive opportunity for learning and knowledge exchange.
