October 8, 2021: Meeting 9 – Making it Count
Location: Pineridge Hollow, RM of Springfield
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we’ve met and kept in touch. Although we did not have the opportunity to meet in-person for almost two years, the progress and important work continued as communities organized and moved forward on projects as a larger CLI group, quadrants and community‑to‑community.
The status quo is being challenged every day by this group of insightful leaders and their administration who are actively seeking more collaborative ways of solving some of the very tough problems that face their communities.
On October 8, 2021, the CLI leaders gathered for their first in-person meeting since the pandemic begun. At this meeting, they discussed next steps for the Collaborative Leadership Initiative. The discussions focused on how to expand the circle to ensure the hard work of the CLI is shared with their councils, administrations, and communities. Leaders also explored opportunities to embed the CLI process—reconciliation in action—in their policies, processes, and governance. Ensuring the hard work of the leaders lives on.
