COMMUNITY
BUILDING TIPS
127
 
Introduction
This e-book of community building tips was authored by the attendees of a dinner dialogue hosted by the Canadian Community for Dialogue and Deliberation in Kamloops BC. The event, held in late July 2013, was held in honour of Nelson Mandela and South African citizens’ community building legacy. I was the event host and shared community building lessons I learned while serving as an election observer in the 1994 South African elections. I want to also thank Natasha Chisholm, Glen Hilke, and Pyara Lotay for sharing their reflections on South Africa, on Africa, and on community building on the microphone.The latter half of the evening featured attendees with many post its, pens, and pencils, brainstorming and recording the best community building tips they knew of. This was the e-book creation session. What an amazing collection of community insight and wisdom! Heartfelt thanks to the authors!
