UBCM Annual Conference
The 2018 UBCM Convention will be held September 10-14 in Whistler, BC.
The UBCM Convention has always provided opportunities for information exchange and policy development. But let’s focus on this year’s gathering as a chance to grow meaningful connections that propel local initiatives forward. Let’s utilize policy making sessions, government meetings, and discussion forums to develop and magnify our united voice, to accelerate initiatives that matter to our communities.
It is said that collaboration divides the task, and multiplies the success. At a time when local leaders are challenged to provide innovative solutions to increasingly complex issues, collaboration has become an essential approach to serving communities, large and small. The theme for this year event will be Communication, Collaboration, Cooperation.
The challenges we face as local leaders are multi-faceted and interjurisdictional. Capacity and servicing challenges, housing affordability and cannabis regulation dominate local, provincial and national conversations. Strategic partnerships between government, as well as community change-makers, can build momentum in areas that have previously challenged local leaders. By embracing new partnerships, we can cultivate unique approaches that could not be successful in isolation.
Online registration opens July 3, 2018. Visit the UBCM website for more information and to register.
