Forum for Leaders of Canadian Leadership Programs in Whistler at the Edgewater Lodge
June 7 and 8, 2009.
The theme for this gathering is "Leadership for Community, Civil Society and the Future of Canada".
This is a Forum for up to 25 of us involved in shaping and delivering leadership development in Canada. With your participation in this Forum our goals are to:
a) exchange information and experiences about our leadership development programs,
b) explore areas of potential collaboration and partnerships,
c) develop recommendations/ next steps for strengthening leadership in community and civil society across Canada.
We will begin at 1:30 pm on Sunday June 7 and finish at 4 pm on Monday June 8. This is just at the end of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Conference in Whistler May 31 to June 7. It will be an ideal time to connect in with the 3,000 elected officials and community leaders from municipalities across Canada. We are very pleased that Brock Carlton, the CEO of FCM will be with us for the Monday afternoon session.
We are also pleased that Monica Patten, President and CEO of the Community Foundations of Canada will be with us and begin our deliberations on Sunday with her thoughts on our theme and the three goals.
