Register now for our upcoming Fireside Chat with Current and Aspiring Elected Leaders session!

"The Importance of Relationship Building"

Featuring Chief Harvey McLeod, Upper Nicola Band

Wednesday, October 27th, 2:00-3:30 PM via Zoom

Pre-Register now: ow.ly/losD50Gu6i7

Chief Harvey McLeod has been the elected chief of Upper Nicola Band since 2014. When he was first elected chief after serving as councillor, he thought the transition would be an easy one. Instead, he found that the role required him to learn new skills, make changes to his priorities, and get used to spending long periods of time on his own. Chief Harvey became especially aware of the importance of learning from others (i.e. mentorship) and developing strong relationships based on understanding and respect. Join Chief McLeod as he shares his leadership journey at this informal online gathering for current and aspiring elected leaders.

Fireside Chats provide opportunities for current and aspiring elected leaders to connect with First Nation mentors. These 90-minute, informal sessions are part of the FNPSS Mentorship Network, which connects BC First Nations with support in the areas of administration, elected leadership, and community planning.
