The fmi*igf Halifax Chapter's April event will be held on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.  Come and join us at the Brightwood Golf and Country Club, 227 School Street, Dartmouth for an informative professional development session entitled "Women in Leadership".  You will hear presentations from Joyce Carter,  President and Chief Executive Officer of the Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) and Anne-Marie Gammon, President and Chief Executive Officer of CPA Atlantic School of Business.  

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m.  The cost of this session is $75.

Joyce Carter's session is entitled "Effecting Change Through Collaboration".  Halifax Stanfield International Airport is managed and developed by Halifax International Airport Authority.  The airport is worth over $2.8 billion annually to the Nova Scotia economy, and employs over 5,600 workers.  It is a catalyst for economic and social growth in the region, and has significant plans for growth.  So much of what it does enables growth, through tourism, trade, economic prosperity, immigration, and business to business connections.  Hear from President & CEO Joyce Carter on how a collaborative leadership style is key.

Anne-Marie Gammon's session is entitled "Resilience and Women in Leadership".  Innovation.  Disruption.  An increasingly complex world.  More than ever, resilience matters.  This interactive session explores the resilience of women in leadership.  Resilience will be defined as a critical leadership trait and how it is borne from trials and tribulations.  We will then explore how resilience can be developed and sustained individually and organizationally as we adapt to the constant challenges of contemporary leadership.

Membership with fmi*igf is included when you attend one of our sessions.  It also provides reduced rates for professional development workshops, on-line access to the fmi*igf Journal and the opportunity to be eligible for a draw that provides free registration and travel subsidy of $1,500 to a national fmi*igf event.  Another benefit of membership is the Chapter's Annual Scholarship for a member or dependent of a member in a full-time study at university or community college.  Details are available on the Chapters web page at www.fmi.ca

The FMI Capital Chapter has had a fantastic year and we are going out with a bang! This is the PD Day you will not want to miss! We have once again, enlisted engaging speakers to highlight some of the Government of Canada's key priorities that are of interest to you and your organization. Dynamic senior leaders, from both inside and outside Government, will share their perspectives on the various government priorities by sector: Economic Policy Priorities; Social Policy Priorities; and Innovation/Experimentation as a Top Priority. The day will feature several exciting keynote speakers throughout the day.

This PD Day is ideally suited for those involved in delivering on these key priorities, new entrants to the public service, aspiring leaders, those involved in strategic policy, program delivery, financial management or strategies and federal budget submissions. The PD Day will also be of interest to those who are clients of these initiatives and those who wish to understand interactions between departments and central agencies, and the Federal Budget process.
