The ILCMA  Professional Development Committee Presents:
Peer Support Programs: Fostering Mental Wellness to Enhance Workplace Effectiveness

Many public servants today, particularly first responders, face high stress levels. This can lead to higher risks of suicide, divorce, and substance abuse issues among employees. Given the unique nature of certain positions,  Peer Support programs have become an attractive alternative to traditional employee assistance programs in recent years.   Such programs can not only increase the mental wellness of participants, but reduce injuries, abstenteeism, and healthcare costs and lead to improved workplace morale and overall organizational effectiveness. Join the ILCMA Professional Development Committee for a panel discussion on why this movement is occurring and how successful programs have been started in Illinois already.

Panelists:

Ray Rummel, Village Manager, Village of Elk Grove,

William Kushner, Chief of Police, City of Des Plaines

Ronald Fraider, Fire Lieutenant, Village of Arlington Heights

Moderator: Randy Recklaus, Village Manager, Village of Arlington Heights

Please join the Metro Managers for the March Luncheon:
Supporting the Future of Our Profession: The Workforce of Tomorrow Meets the Reality of Today

The landscape of professional city and county management is changing. Are we up for the challenge and are we taking the steps to help the profession flourish in the future? The numbers indicate that college students are less interested in pursuing our profession and more managers have come to their position in less traditional ways. The program will discuss what steps we and our professional associations are taking to encourage students to consider our profession, as well as how we can support managers that come to the position from non-traditional ways. Senior Advisor Greg Bielawski and a panel will discuss these issues and then seek comments from the audience.

Come have lunch with colleagues in the Metro Managers Association and make an effort to bring along managers and future potential managers that do not normally attend our luncheon meetings.
