First Nations Band Management & Best Practices
Workshop goals & topics
Many Band managers and First Nations staff strive to meet members’ needs and respond to administrative and financial challenges with limited resources.
AFOA BC has developed a workshop to help First Nations managers, councilors and finance personnel manage effectively within existing resources. The two-day program covers best practices in key areas of First Nations management responsibility. Participants will learn about:
· Time management – Find out how to increase efficiency, promote team building, avoid pitfalls and prevent burnout
· Strategic planning – Discover how to identify strategic directions and goals, develop a plan to accomplish these objectives, monitor progress and evaluate success
· Managing human resources – Review the importance of employment policies/procedures, legal issues, the Band Manager’s duties, and best practices in hiring and firing
· Financial planning and accountability – Learn about wealth management for organizational success, capital project planning, managing a deficit, trust administration, and differences in annual and multi-year management cycles
