Development Drinks

Development Drinks is a monthly networking event for development professionals run by OCIC volunteers in Ottawa and Toronto. Held the second week of each month – on Wednesday in Ottawa, and Thursday in Toronto – it provides a space to connect with others who are passionate about working, volunteering and learning about the sector.  Development Drinks events are free, and registration is required. Join us on Twitter by using the #DevDrinks hashtag at your local event.
