HSA launches local leadership training


As HSA adapts to a changing world and chooses to be a stronger, more innovative union, the Local Leadership Training program will provide members with cutting-edge training and professional skills to improve HSA workplaces, protect our professions and build a stronger union.

HSA members face increased pressure from governments and employers, attacks on our members' professional integrity from the leadership of the BCNU and health care funding cuts from our provincial and federal governments.

These crises provide an opportunity for HSA to innovate, grow capacity and build power. The diversity and the professionalism of HSA members is our strength.

HSA has partnered with Organize BC, the leading progressive change agent in BC, on a series of training and capacity-building programs for members across BC. Participants will learn about the five foundational leadership practices and how to use those tools to improve HSA workplaces.

The first union-paid training will be taking place at the HSA Office in New Westminster, BC on June 27-28. Additional training opportunities will be scheduled this fall.
