Get Zooming with these Archival Backgrounds from the NVMA

f you’re anything like us, you’ve been spending a lot of time on Zoom lately. Usage of this popular teleconferencing platform has exploded in recent weeks, as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many of us to work from home and connect to friends, family and colleagues virtually. In our weekly team meetings here at the NVMA, we’ve been having a lot of fun with our Zoom backgrounds. This got us thinking that it might be fun to provide some North Vancouver history and heritage themed Zoom backgrounds for our friends, supporters and community at large.

National Volunteer Week: Honouring Our Incredible Volunteers

We are grateful to have such a committed, energetic and passionate group of volunteers and Friends Society members. We really value the contribution they make and want to say a massive thanks to them during National Volunteer Week.

Volunteer Spotlight: Eric Jamieson

Sunday, April 19, will mark the start of National Volunteer Week in Canada. This is a coast-to-coast-to-coast celebration of the commitment, dedication, generosity and selflessness of Canada’s almost 12.7 million volunteers. In North Vancouver, some volunteers are working from home to ensure that NVMA’s activities continue despite social distancing. As you will read, Eric Jamieson is doing just that as he builds on the contributions he has made over many years.
