Program Available for Leadership Forum

The full program for the 2017 LGLA Leadership Forum is now available. The forum theme is Communication: Listening, Connecting, Leading and will offer sessions on a wide range of topics, including public speaking; managing difficult conversations; moving beyond bullying and harassment, understanding communication styles; and local government communication tools.

Acclaimed author, journalist and Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Speaker Richard Wagamese will deliver a keynote on the importance of storytelling. Professional Graphic Recorder, Sam Bradd, will attend Forum events and sessions and produce an artistic rendering of the proceedings, as well as deliver a “how-to” presentation. Robert Laboucane of Aboriginal Awareness Canada will discuss how to improve communications between local governments and First Nations communities; and The Humphrey Group will deliver a practical, two-part workshop on public speaking.

The Leadership Forum will run Feb 1-3 and will be held in Richmond, B.C. All local government and First Nations elected officials and senior administrators are welcome to attend.

Our full program is now available online, as is registration, accommodation and other important information. Please visit the 2017 LGLA Forum event page for details.
