3:15 – 4:15 p.m.

Join us to explore ways elected municipal officials can balance the demands of public office with personal life and full-or part-time jobs. In many parts of the country, municipal office is considered a part-time job—yet the demands of local councillors continue to grow. We’ll explore new tools and strategies elected officials can use to tackle work-related stress and establish a stable and sustainable way of working that emphasizes balance and general well-being.
