Local Gov no date 2018 Conference Local Government Interrupt

Western’s Local Government Program Alumni Society is thrilled to be hosting the 26th annual conference: Local Government Interrupted. 

We’ll be talking ranked balloting with representatives from the City of London (a unique opportunity to hear first-hand how the previous month’s election went), examining the public-private partnership between Uber and the Town of Innisfil, discussing the impact of marijuana legalization on police services, municipalities and the provincial government’s role, and – new this year – we’ll be doing a workshop-style session on change management.

The conference keynote will be Jesse Wente, Broadcaster, Advocate & Pop Culture Philosopher speaking about the trends he sees happening across the country to share a vision for what is possible. As a self-described ‘Ojibwe dude’ with a national and international lens, he encourages audiences to consider diversity and inclusion in the future view of their organization, industry and country.
