State or Province:




what are your gifts and talents?:

I love public speaking, engaging with groups. I have a background in heritage interpretation, which taught me how to teach complicated subjects in understandable ways for learners of all ages. I am a connector, I am interested in everyone and once I know you, I tuck that info away and then when something comes to me that I think may be interesting or helpful to you I share it with you.

why do you want to join abcd in action?:

I work for a rural municipality. Our population is declining but our community is hopeful and wants to encourage more people to join our community and benefit from the rural lifestyle. I would like to learn from others and find peers to engage with.

Hi Amanda,

Welcome to ACBD in Action. Thank you for joining us. You might be interested in joining one of the ABCD and Rural Communities of Practice, you will find information in the events. You will find there are many of us that live and/or work in small rural communities.

We recommend you take some time wandering around the ABCD in Action website as there is a wealth of information from blogs to videos. You will also find details of upcoming trainings in our Events section along with the FREE virtual Global Gatherings where you can connect with other ABCD community members.

The ABCD Institute website has great information too along with information on our Global ABCD stewards. You may also like to join the ABCD in Action group on Facebook.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Yours in Community,

Michelle Dunscombe
