Electoral Area Directors Forum 2024

Richmond, BC


The Electoral Area Directors’ (EAD) Forum will be held on January 30 and 31 at the Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond, BC. The Forum will begin at 12 noon on January 30, and end at 12 noon on January 31.

The Local Government Leadership Academy (LGLA) Forum is scheduled immediately after the EAD forum, from January 31- February 2 at the same location, to help reduce costs and provide an opportunity for delegates to attend both learning events. 

The Electoral Area Directors' Forum focuses on issues of concern to electoral area directors and provides an opportunity to discuss common problems and share potential solutions to the problems identified. The conference is open to electoral area directors and their alternates, regional district chairs, and regional district staff.

Director Jerrilyn Kirk, Electoral Area Representative on the UBCM Executive, will work with staff to build the agenda around matters of current concern to those representing electoral areas. In addition, Electoral Area Directors can submit their own ideas or examples of best practices for discussion at the forum. Please submit your suggested Forum topics by November 30 by emailing mchiang@ubcm.ca.


Registration is now open for the Electoral Area Directors’ Forum. The cost for the Forum is $199 plus tax and includes a lunch and reception on January 30, and breakfast on January 31.
