2016 LGLA Leadership Forum

What an event! Thanks so much to our incredible line-up of speakers and to a wonderful group of delegates for making the 2016 LGLA Leadership Forum a resounding success! This was one of the best annual forums to date and we look forward to building on what we’ve learned this year to bring you an even better event in 2017. Thank you for exploring Respectful Leadership with us!

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

Stay tuned for 2017 Leadership Forum announcements and in the meantime look for LGLA representatives at your spring Area Association conferences and at this year’s UBCM Convention. And stay in touch! We love hearing from you, and your session topic and other suggestions help us to continue offering timely, relevant learning opportunities for elected officials around the province.
