On September 18, the non-partisan Forum for Millennial Leadership (FML) will be hosting a half-day conference focused on the next generation of young leaders in BC.

The conference will be held at Vancouver Convention Centre West and takes place just over a month before October’s municipal elections. Attendees can expect an engaging discussion featuring prominent business and community leaders, municipal candidates, provincial politicians, as well as noted media personalities.
