Upcoming Events hosted by Access Humboldt 

NorCAN Media 101 

Join NorCAN for an interactive Media 101 workshop alongside Access Humboldt, Wednesday March 29th 2023 10AM  sponsored by NorCAN and hosted by the ERV Community Center Foundation. Participants will be introduced to Humboldt's nonprofit Media Resource, Access Humboldt and given a walk through of free and available resources and how media can enhance their nonprofit/organization to better engage with their community. We will touch on media literacy and how they can better use and utilize local news and information to better serve Humboldt County. Lastly we'll cover easy ways to get involved with community media and to better platform your nonprofit/organization. 

ERV plans initially to operate NorCAN as a one-year pilot program. During the 2023 calendar year, ERV staff will work closely with the NorCAN Reorganizing Committee to guide the transition, re-launch, and programming. At the end of 2023, the Committee and ERV staff will evaluate whether the association is able to meet its commitment to serve the region’s nonprofit community while remaining financially viable. NorCAN was originally established in 1999, when HAF+WRCF came together with local nonprofit leaders to provide a vehicle for nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers to access professional development and technical assistance and to have opportunities to network, collaborate, and advocate.
