A leadership development initiative

The Local Government Leadership Academy is a leadership development initiative that serves local government and First Nations elected officials and senior administrators throughout British Columbia by improving the competencies needed to effectively manage and lead BC’s communities.

What an occasion for a celebration!  With the most breathtaking “backdrop” of Whistler Village, LGLA had the honour and opportunity to shine the light on the last three years’ Leadership Certificate winners at the UBCM Convention.  LGLA President, Laurey-Anne Roodenburg, and Minister Nathan Cullen paid personal tribute to our Level I, Level II and Level III Certificate recipients at each of the Small-Talk, Midsized, Large Urban Communities and EA Forums.  Please click on the updated lists under the “Programs” tab, for a historical view of certificate holders to the present day.
