2018 LGLA Leadership Forum Registration

The Local Government Leadership Academy’s 2018 Leadership Forum will be held January 31-February 2 in Richmond. The theme is Leading to the Finish: Reflections on a Term in Office. Delegates will reflect on the first 4-year electoral term, and consider challenges overcome, successes achieved, and the path forward.

The 2018 theme follows on the themes of respectful leadership and communication covered in the last two province-wide forums. Topics will include:  responsible conduct, the challenges that come with social media use, learning from the summer 2017 forest fires, exploring community economic development success stories, celebrating partnerships between local governments and First Nations, women in local government, and current legal and financial issues in local governance.

The Honourable Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing will be in attendance, as will representatives from the Official Opposition and the Green Party. Shachi Kurl, Executive Director of the Angus Reid Institute will deliver the keynote address on opening day.

Since the first forum in 2007, LGLA's annual province-wide gathering has been well received by elected officials and senior administrators from BC local governments and First Nations communities. All those with an interest in leadership at the local level will benefit from attendance, including those working towards an LGLA Certificate in Local Government Leadership.

LGLA Forum registration is $325 per person + GST, and includes the welcome reception, full breakfasts on Thursday and Friday, lunch on Thursday, and refreshment breaks.

UBCM will also be hosting the annual Electoral Area Directors’ Forum at the Radisson Hotel from January 30–31.
