Local Government Alumni Conference
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.
Registration fees are:
Dinner and Dialogue - Come for the food and drinks, stay for the dialogue!
We’re mixing up the conference social this year and are looking forward to an interactive networking event that will help alumni and guests connect with past and present professors and fellow alumni. This is a great opportunity to reunite with friends and build new connections to help you on your local government leadership journey.
