The Program

“Trust can be like walking a tightrope with an invisible net” – Blodwen Hudon. As a leader you have difficult landscapes to navigate with a small margin of error, the right amount of tension, and the right mind set. A large part of creating effective relationships is trust. When we create relationships, we build stronger and more effective communities through shared values to achieve our goals. The CAO/CEO Forum on April 19-20, 2018, will provide the leaders of municipal government the best practices and skills to balance their relationships. Topics include: conflict resolution, developing political acumen and building critical relationships. The detailed program will be released later next week.

Please note that the session is open to CAOs, Deputy CAOs, Mayors, Deputy Mayors, Wardens, Deputy Wardens, Clerks, and Village Commissioner Chairs.
