The 2018 CEO and Senior Staff Institute is Aug. 5-8, 2018, at the Westin Bayshore Vancouver in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Uniquely designed to meet the needs of pool executives and department heads, the CEO Institute provides a leadership development opportunity to work and learn without pool board members or service providers present. Our CEO-level members routinely tell us this program is by far the most valuable leadership development experience they are afforded.

AGRiP Generational Resident Kim Lear will present core content. An expert in multigenerational workforce dynamics, Lear will provide customized ideas and targeted strategies for public entity pools to:

  • Attract employee talent among upcoming generations.
  • Retain existing working generations.
  • Understand cultural, technological, and diversity forces shaping today’s work environment.
  • Successfully manage multigenerational operations.
  • Better connect with the changing expectations of pool members, including the new generations of public entity elected and appointed officials.

Additional content will focus exclusively on how pools must adapt to workforce and membership changes brought about by rapid technology innovation and increasing diversity (age, ethnicity, faith, gender).

After you register online for the CEO Institute, you will be sent a confirmation email with information and links to the AGRiP rooming block at the Westin Bayshore Vancouver to make your lodging reservations. Reservations made without the provided link will be outside the negotiated AGRiP block.

If you make hotel reservations before registering for the conference, you are doing so outside of the AGRiP room block and we will not be able to assist you with any hotel changes or needs.

Hotel room rates in the AGRiP lodging block start at $309 CAD per night, plus tax and service fees. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis and remain available at that rate from Sunday, Aug. 5-Wednesday, Aug. 8. Additional nights are available at regular rates. Rooms reserved within the block include complimentary high speed internet access from Aug. 4-8.

AGRiP never solicits hotel reservations directly via email or phone calls, and we do not employ third-party housing services. If you receive any outreach regarding hotel reservations other than the link provided in response to your conference registration, it is a scam and you should not respond.
