2013 Leadership Forum


FEBRUARY 20-22, 2013



Thanks to all of the excellent speakers, organizers and delegates who helped to make the 2013 LGLA Leadership Forum a great success!  This year’s provincial “Leading through Relationships” event followed the very successful 2012 series of Seminars for New and Returning Elected Officials – providing fresh learning and networking opportunities for local elected officials entering the second year of their current three-year terms.

Session materials (where available) are posted below – please feel free to download and make use of these excellent resource materials.

Stay tuned for 2014 Forum announcements.  We  will continue to provide the same highly-rated sessions you have experienced at all past LGLA events. Next year will be our seventh year of hosting the province-wide event. The 2014 Forum will involve a mix of inspiring plenary sessions, practical concurrent workshops, and networking opportunities.  We hope to see you there!
