Civic Engage is partnering with the Union of BC Municipalities and the Local Government Leadership Academy to build an Elected Official Community of Practice on public engagement. The purpose of this project is to increase the capacity of local governments to integrate high quality public engagement into their decision-making processes. It recognizes the key role of elected officials in sponsoring public engagement, as well as their need for targeted professional development opportunities that leverage participant knowledge and maintain confidentiality.

We have hosted workshops at the 2014 and 2015 UBCM conventions and the 2016 LGLA Forum. In the coming months, we are planning two webinars to reach elected officials from across the province.
