Rich History - Being Equipped for the Future

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.  The role of the Municipal Clerk or Corporate Officer is the oldest of public servants in local government and over the years has become the hub of government.  The 2017 Forum features local government experts who will help you grow your knowledge of the history of your role and equip you with the abilities and skills for the future. 

Important elements and learning outcomes include: 

  • a blend of theory and practice, with an emphasis on interactive, two-way discussion, practical application, and case study review;
  • 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;
  • the opportunity to establish a network of contacts and potential mentors throughout the province.
