Municipal Administration Leadership Workshop Cancellation

With the rapid developments around COVID-19, and the recent announcement by Premier Kenney declaring a "public health emergency" the CLGM Board has made the very difficult decision to cancel the May 11-15, 2020 Municipal Administration Leadership Workshop.

We are optimistic that we will be able to host next year's event and look forward to offering an exciting and successful event in 2021.

Please keep safe and healthy.

Executive Director Linda Davies CLGM

The Society of Local Government Managers (SLGM) is pleased to launch the ‘online’ Local Government Leadership Profiles.

This initiative was initiated by the Society of Local Government Managers Board of Directors with specific leadership provided by Board Chair Chris Jardine, CLGM and Society member Dr. Gordon McIntosh, CLGM with input from professionals throughout Alberta. At the 2013 SLGM conference, participants identified key leadership competencies required of Chief Administrative Officers, managers and supervisors to deal with the changing local government landscape. Later that year, a province-wide survey provided further leadership insights. A group of professionals developed key leader expectations for further input at the 2014 SLGM conference.

These competency-based Leader Profiles will be helpful for:

  • Councils to recruit and provide feedback for the Chief Administrative Officer position
  • Incumbent and aspiring CAOs to undertake self–assessments and develop the needed competencies to prepare to advance.
  • CAOs and managers to guide the staff performance and learning
  • Municipal–related Associations to provide contemporary training needs
  • Educational institutions to ensure contemporary competency-based learning
Strategic Leader Profile
Tactical Leader Profile
Operational Leader Profile

The SLGM Board looks forward to sharing and working with professional and political associations to enhance local government leadership.

Our profound thanks to all who volunteered their time and participated in this venture and in particular Dr. Gord McIntosh.
