All-New Structured Virtual Networking Discussion: Learning From One Another

An important element of prior in-person Forums was connecting seasoned leaders with new ones during allotted times to chat and network. This new, virtual structured networking session provides an opportunity for the group to share their experiences and ‘what keeps them up at night’ as both seasoned and new municipal senior leaders. Join us for this special networking session to hear what’s affecting fellow senior leaders within the sector and to discuss topics identified by our session moderators. This session will be in-camera providing an opportunity to chat freely about important sector topics, trends, and professional challenges. Listen and learn from one another while continuing to build ideas and your professional network.

Session Facilitators:

Annette Gilchrist, CMO, AOMC, Dipl.M.M. – Chief Administrative Officer/Clerk/Treasurer, Township of Bonnechere Valley
Kyle Pratt, MPA, CMM III, CHRL, CMO – Chief Administrative Officer, Town of Tillsonburg
Kiel Anderson – Manager, Policy & Business Operations, City of Ottawa
