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.

Registration is on for the 2023 EOS (Elected Officials Seminars).

The Local Government Leadership Academy is once again hosting the 2023 Elected Officials Seminars.  The EOS is held every four years, following the BC local government elections. These seminars are designed for both newly elected and returning elected officials, as well as senior staff.


Sessions are held over a three day period in each of the five Area Associations, however delegates are encouraged to attend the venue of their choice, as the program over the three days will be very similar if not completely identical.

Each session in a given venue, will begin at Noon on Wednesday, and  wind up at Noon on Friday.  

Please find Standard Program-At-A-Glance here.   

Cost is $450 + GST per delegate. Registration is on now through CivicInfo.

Please click on the session of your choice to access the registration portal.
