A commitment to ongoing leadership:  In 2021, I completed the Level 2 Certification in Local Government Leadership after completing Level 1 in 2017. These LGLA Leadership Certifications involve workshops, conferences and seminars on governance, financial reporting and legal responsibilities as well as understanding the many key issues facing local governments in B.C.  A level can be achieved only once each 4 year term.

These learning opportunities plus the many external relationships with other local governments I’ve developed through SILGA, UBCM, the CSRD and the ORL  have been incredibly valuable in being a more effective councillor. If re-elected, I’ll complete the highest certification available – Level 3 – in the upcoming term. Continuous Learning is always an ongoing part of leadership.
