Can you hear the marching cadence? “1-2-3-4, let’s get this on, 1-2-3-4 ...1-2!”

October 16-18, 2019 Southport Manitoba

Invitation:

While this professional development and continuing learning opportunity will appeal to all CAO’s Assistant CAO’s and Finance Officers, it will be of most benefit to those who are new to municipal government and those who wish to develop professionally and progress to new levels of responsibilities.

The boot camp is space limited to a maximum of 30. A second offering of this event will be scheduled in early 2020.

The sessions will be interactive and intensive offering administrators an opportunity to keep current with best practices in both finance and administration. The small class size will allow more in-depth discussion and hands on learning. Topics will include:
