Leaders Lab Speaker Series - Ready or Not: Services need to support community and economic change
June 13, 2019 · 7:00pm
Location: Northern Light's College, Room 202, 9820 120 Avenue, Fort St. John

Guest Speaker: Greg Halseth, Professor, UNBC Geography Program; Canada Research Chair in Rural and Small Town Studies; Co-Director, Community Development Institute

People depend on local services - from government, the business sector, and non-profit organizations - every day in order to support a good quality of life for themselves and their families. Services are especially important to people during times of change or during economic boom or bust. But, just when people need them most, these services are taxed to over-capacity. 

In his presentation, Professor Greg Halseth will discuss how governments and communities could better meet the challenge of providing local services during boom and bust cycles to make sure that people have access to the services they need. 

Session Moderator: Marleen Morris, Co-Director, Community Development Institute

Free Admission.
