Last Chance to Register for Leadership Forum

Registration for the LGLA’s 2018 Leadership Forum, January 31-Feburary 2 in Richmond, is open until January 17, but the remaining spots are filling up quickly. This year’s keynote will be delivered by Shachi Kurl, Executive Director of the Angus Reid Institute, who will discuss public perceptions on key issues facing BC local governments, including respectful conduct, civic engagement, reconciliation, cannabis legalization and climate change.

The opening day will also include a plenary session on Responsible Conduct and wrap with a networking reception.

The main day of the forum will provide delegates with the opportunity to attend 4 of 6 concurrent sessions on social media survival strategies, women in local government, community economic development, summer 2017 forest fires, local government-First Nations partnerships, and channelling negative pressure into positive change. Back by popular demand is an evening open discussion forum where delegates will have a chance to talk, share stories and advice and do a little problem solving in an informal setting with colleagues from around the province.

Day 3 features sessions on cannabis legalization, preparing for the 2018 local government elections, local government finance, new economic development opportunities and revenue sources.

LGLA is pleased to welcome Honourable Selina Robinson and MLA Adam Olsen to this year’s proceedings, along with special early-morning clinics from UBCM, MIA and BC Assessment. 

Cost is $350+GST. See the 2018 Leadership Forum webpage for all details. And remember – the Forum is open to both elected officials and senior staff from local governments and First Nations.
