How To Run a Local - Administration

In this workshop, Local Executives will learn the key components of a functioning Local, including strategic planning, meeting best-practices, and executive roles and responsibilities. This hybrid workshop will consist of an in-class portion (via Zoom) and self-directed online modules for participants to complete. The schedule for the day as well as the Zoom link will be sent to registrants the day before the workshop. Both the online modules and the in-class portion must be completed to receive Provincial funding for this workshop.

This workshop is designed for Local Executive members and is provincially funded for Local Execs who have not taken it previously. It is one workshop in the three-part How to Run a Local series: Administration, Finance, and Labour Relations.

Please ensure you have a UNANet account and can access your Local’s information on DMS.
