Meghana Valupadas - Women's Advocacy Voice of Edmonton
The top three reasons I decided to volunteer for Women's Advocacy Voice of Edmonton (WAVE) were to learn about governance and municipal systems, become more connected in my community, and provide representation through my voice.
The opportunity to be a member of a board allows you to provide your unique and valuable perspective directly to City leadership on issues that affect your communities.
You get to grow new skills in communication, leadership and advocacy. But my favourite reason is the amazing people you get to meet, from other board members to community advocates - you will be surrounded by people who are trying to make the world a better place.
