Join us for the 27th Annual Conference, Caution! Change Ahead: Constructing Resilient Communities.
The Conference Schedule is now available.
This year’s theme is all about what makes a resilient community, and how to adapt and lead in the fast paced, ever-changing world of local government. This year’s conference will provide municipal administrators the opportunity to network, develop strategies for dealing with current and future shocks, and to hear how others have thrived in the face of these challenges – and how you can too!
We’re thrilled to announce our keynote speaker for the event: Jeff Fielding, Chief of Staff, City of Toronto. Other sessions will explore the topic of municipal resilience from different perspectives, including hearing from other experienced Chief Administrator Officers and experts on municipal-provincial relations.
