The Governor General's Canadian Leadership Conference
The Governor General's Canadian Leadership Conference brings together Canada's emerging leaders from business, labour, government, NGOs, education and the cultural sector for a unique two-week experience aimed at broadening their perspectives on work, leadership, their communities and their country.

The membership application process for the 2015 Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference opened on Monday, March 3rd, 2014.  Online applications are being received at www.leadershipcanada.ca .  It can be anticipated that the majority of Conference members selected for 2015 will have first heard about the Conference through a former participant.  CAMA Board members, Ron Shaw and Marc Landry, are alumni of this wonderful program, and want to spread the word!  The application process will remain open until September 30.
 
The 2015 Conference opens in St. John’s on May 22 and closes two weeks later in Ottawa-Gatineau, on June 5, 2015.  The Conference theme for 2015 is Leadership and Innovation.  There is no cost for selected members – the only expense is travel to the opening plenary location, and home from the closing plenary.
