LGLA 2020 Leadership Forum Announcement

The Local Government Leadership Academy’s Leadership Forum will be held Wednesday to Friday, February 5-7, 2020 at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport in Richmond. Please consider attending this great learning and networking event!

2020 theme is: Inclusive Leadership: Respectful, Collaborative, Engaged

The LGLA Forum is preceded by the UBCM Electoral Area Directors Forum held at the same venue February 4-5. Electoral Area Directors have an opportunity to attend both events and save on travel costs.

Following up on the spring Elected Officials Seminar series, Inclusive Leadership will focus on helping people build skills with the idea of inclusivity. An exciting line-up of professional speakers, elected officials and staff will deliver a mixture of plenary workshops, clinics, and concurrent sessions to offer practical examples in leadership. Elected officials participating will leave with practical tools to help them work with one another, staff and the public in collaborative ways that recognize the diversity of people and perspectives that make up BC communities.

The Forum is a great opportunity for delegates from all corners of BC to network, to learn from and to support each other. Forum participants can also obtain credits towards their LGLA certification.
