We’re trying to build a network with different communities that might have people who are interested in contributing to the story collecting (as writers, facilitators, etc). The hope is that eventually it can be used as an educational resource.

Membership Questionnaire

How to spend a cold and dark winter evening? By filling out a short questionnaire! 

Dear Members, we've been working on a questionnaire to find out more about you, our members. We'll be sending it out soon via email and hope that all of you will respond. By taking the time to answer a few questions, you will help us all. One of the mandate of WBB is to provide networking opportunities to its members and after receiving a bit more information from you we would be able to do just that. This could also serve as a membership form. 

Thank you for your help!
