Leadership Series: Local NAC Chair Workshop

In 2018, SUN Provincial launched our Leadership Education Series designed to continue to build the capacity of our Local Leaders and provide them with the tools and resources they needed to take a focused, consistent and strategic approach to addressing member concerns. In February 2019, SUN Provincial rolled out a brand-new tool kit and workshop designed for Local NAC Chairs to support them within their Local role.

Very well put together. I understand so much more now.

Overall great presentation, really empowering for change.

The Leadership Series is a great resource for locals.

These workshops are so beneficial! Thank you for the opportunity!

Back by popular demand, this one-day workshop designed for Local NAC Chairs will once again look at the complex and changing practice environment. The workshop will examine the crucial roles our NAC leaders play in educating and guiding members through the NAC process, and demonstrate how to be active in finding appropriate, long-terms solutions.

Because the content for this year’s workshop is similar to the information presented last year, our experienced NAC Chairs in attendance are encouraged to share their experiences, lessons learned and personal successes to help our up-and-coming SUN leaders.



This workshop is designed for Local NAC Chair or a designate.
Additional members of the Local Executive or Local NAC Committee may register to attend, if space permits, as locally funded or unfunded members.
