Growing Awareness: Branching Out and Reaching New Heights

Since 2006, this annual educational offering has focused on emerging trends and legal and legislative changes of relevance to Clerks and Corporate Officers in BC local government.  In your role you need to wear many different hats, and the 2016 Forum features local government experts who will help you grow your knowledge, branch out and enhance your abilities, and ecourage the innovation necessary for you to assist your organization to reach new heights.

  • updates and information based on current concepts relating to administrative, legal, and statutory matters;
  • a forum for the exchange of ideas and methodologies within local government, particularly in the area of best practices;
