The Canada Western Region is committed to providing leadership development opportunities for our board leaders.

This is accomplished through:

  • Supporting an annual Dare to Lead conference for incoming board members from all regional chapters
  • Conducting portfolio calls for key board functions to share ideas and best practices with other board colleagues across the region
  • Encouraging best practices sharing across the region
  • Archiving presentations to be used for chapter board development
  • Collecting best practice samples for chapter management

Dare to Lead

Dare to Lead is IABC/Canada West’s annual training conference for incoming chapter leaders, and is hosted by the six chapters in rotation. In addition to providing speakers and resources for the conference, IABC/Canada West provides grant money so each chapter in the region can send delegates to the conference.
