Policy Development Management Training Academy – Virtual Workshop Series – Day 2

  • This event has passed.

The First Nations Public Service Secretariat (FNPSS)’s Management Training Academies (MTAs) provide tools and training tailored to BC First Nations needs from experts in the core competencies: Records and Information Management (RIM), Policy Development, and Human Resources Management (HR). 

Policy is a tool that helps support communities as they achieve their goals and clarifies how governments operate to the benefit of the citizens. Through the Policy MTA, which will be delivered over three virtual half-days on Zoom, participants build an understanding of the purpose and objectives of policy, learn more about how it is used effectively, and engage in discussions on practical and everyday examples of policy at work within communities. The MTA also focuses on creating and sustaining policy frameworks that are aimed at achieving social, governance, economic, and environmental success.

Event Dates: Nov 9, 16, & 23, 2021
Event Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm (each day)
Event Location: Zoom
Cost: $185 (includes all three half-day sessions)
