On October 1st of this year, a 5-à-7 networking event was held at La Shop restaurant in Magog. This meeting, which arose from discussions by the socio-economic committee, brought together players from different areas of activity. The goal of the evening was to promote networking and improve inter-organizational knowledge in order to provide referrals and support to individuals based on their needs.
Twelve organizations from the socio-economic, community, health, and social services sectors, attended this evening, which took place in a friendly atmosphere. The stakeholders appreciated being able to talk with one another and to ask questions in an informal setting. Also, it was an opportunity to meet new people or to strengthen existing ties. Many saw this as a refreshing experience that gave them an incentive to do more networking.
Further to this 5-à-7, a suggestion was made to the partners to conduct mutual visits. Partners are encouraged to visit organizations which they want to learn more about and, inversely, to invite organizations to come visit them. In order to really understand a particular environment and to be able to talk to others about it, nothing beats getting a firsthand look at it, observing the activities that take place there, and meeting those who work there. A list of contact information for the different organizations in Memphremagog has been sent to the partners in order to facilitate communications.
Collaborations like these are beneficial not only for the individuals who receive the services, but for the organizations as well
