Leduc County celebrates collaborative excellence

Graduation ceremony highlights regional collaboration efforts

April 17, 2014 – Nearly 30 staff members from municipalities in the Leduc County region were recognized this afternoon for their successful completion of either the Supervising for Results or Administrative Excellence program.

Both programs are sponsored and hosted by Leduc County and administered by MacEwan University. Graduates represent Leduc County, the City of Leduc, the Town of Devon, the Town of Beaumont and Brazeau County.

“Through Leduc County’s sponsorship of these programs, we are able to significantly decrease the cost to participating organizations, while providing relevant and meaningful business education,” says Roxanne Girard, human resources coordinator. “In addition, these programs allow participants to foster positive relationships with regional partners and stakeholders.”

Each program is roughly one year in duration, and includes five full days of hands-on instructional time. This is the first graduation ceremony for the Administrative Excellence program.

Leduc County is currently sponsoring and hosting Leading for Results, a program in its first year, which already has full enrollment and involvement from the City of Leduc, Town of Beaumont, Town of Calmar, Village of Thorsby, Village of Warburg, City of Wetaskiwin, Leduc-Nisku Economic Development Association and Leduc Foundation

Leduc County, the City of Leduc and the Town of Beaumont had partnered in offering Supervising for Results from 2009 to 2012 and were jointly awarded the 2013 Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators Education Award for the commitment to developing educational materials and related tools for municipal administrators.
