The deadline to apply has passed. Thanks to all who put their names forward to attend this exciting summit. ONA will notify successful candidates soon.

Activist Camp and Leadership Summit

Have you always wanted to get more in­volved in the work of our union? Or perhaps you are a new or seasoned leader and want to hone your skill set. If so, we have just the program for you!

Back by popular demand, ONA’s 2017 Leadership Summit will take place from September 18-22 at the Oakwood Resort in Grand Bend. As in last year, the conference will focus on three streams: activists, novice and advanced.

All candidates (and their Local Coordinators) will be notified, by email, of the status of their application no later than June 7, 2017. Successful candidates and their Local Coordinators will be advised of the formal registration process once the selection process has been completed.

This conference is limited to a maximum of 25 registrants per stream.

Activist Camp

The Activist Camp is designed specifically to engage and motivate our members at the grassroots level. The program, dubbed ONA’s Activist Camp, is geared towards our front-line members that have an interest in ONA, particularly those who have had little to no engagement in the past.

Novice Program

The Novice Program is aimed at new Bargain­ing Unit Presidents, ONA representatives and potential new ONA leaders/representatives who want to build their capacity to deliver services to ONA members.

Advanced Program

The Advanced Program is designed for more experienced ONA leaders who want to build and strengthen their Bargaining Unit and/or Local union from the ground up. Sessions include motivating and engag­ing members, building effective teams to strengthen our union, and recruiting and re­taining volunteers.
