Description

Third Annual OGRA Emerging Municipal Leaders Forum

Ontario’s municipalities are the most responsive form of government when it comes to citizens’ day-to-day needs. Yet, many continue to underestimate the importance of local governments – including students considering their future career options. At the 2017 OGRA Conference, students, recent grads, and interns will have the opportunity to speak directly with municipal leaders about the important work they do every day.

The Emerging Municipal Leaders Forum will feature a panel of young leaders from both the elected and civil servant sides of municipal government. These individuals will share their thoughts and experiences with students interested in a career at the local level. Students in attendance will hear what it takes to succeed and learn how the industry is evolving. A significant amount of time will be allocated for questions.

New for 2017: The panel discussion will be followed by a networking session. Students will have the opportunity to talk to municipal leaders looking to speak directly to those interested in a career in municipal government.

Students interested in public policy, law, planning, economics, engineering, communication, and public office are encouraged to register and come prepared with questions for discussion.
