The ILCMA  Professional Development Committee Presents:  “Communication & Onboarding with Elected Officials”

The spring elections will be here before you know it. Are you preparing an onboarding strategy when those newly elected come through your door? What is your strategy for onboarding and orientation with your newly-elected officials? Have you reviewed your current methods of communication with your elected officials and thought about what can be improved? What guidance will you provide about elected officials’ communication with the residents and consituents they represent? What are some of the legal pitfalls elected officials find themselves in, and how can we help to minimize that risk? And, what should you do if an elected official independently takes to social media? Having a specific plan for orienting elected officials and a common communiation strategy can lead to successful relationships between managers, the elected body and the public.

Panelists will include:

  • Julie Tappendorf, Partner, Ancel Glink
  • Eric Palm, Village Administrator, River Forest
  • Shawn Hamilton, Consultant, Gallagher

Addresses ICMA Practice Areas 6 (Strategic Leadership); 8 (Policy Facilitation and Implementation); and 9 (Communication and Information Sharing)

Please join the Metro Managers for the March Luncheon:  “The Greenest Region Compact”

Sustainability is broadly defined to include actions that are both economically sound and provide benefits for people and the planet. Municipalities of all sizes are taking actions that are sustainable – and some may not even realize it. The Greenest Region Compact (GRC) is a set of consensus sustainability goals that was built on the foundation of practical actions already being taken by municipalities. This sensible Compact, now formally supported by more than 100 municipal members in the Chicagoland area, is collaborating to attract resources. The Greenest Region Compact is now the largest regional municipal sustainability collaborative in the United States.

 

The Metropolitan Mayors Caucus and its Environment Committee offer supportive tools to achieve common GRC goals. Come listen to Edith Makra, Director of Environmental Initiatives with the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus, and learn details on the GRC and how it is being used to advance sustainability on various levels including the areas of advanced clean energy, alternate fuels and environmental stewardship for municipalities. Join other colleagues in Metro Managers to learn more about the GRC and consider bringing your community’s resident “sustainability expert” along with you for a networking luncheon and information gathering.
