The ILCMA  Professional Development Committee Presents:

Role of the Assistant: Deployment & Development to Benefit the Organization and the Employee

Assistant Managers play a variety of roles across communities, depending on everything from the community size and leadership style to career goals and experience. A diverse panel will discuss their experiences both serving as assistants and developing assistants, offering insight into how assistants can best contribute to their communities and what they need to thrive.  This session will delve into topics of interest to professionals in all stages of their careers from aspiring assistants looking to prepare themselves for a new role to veteran managers looking to create an environment where their staff is effective and engaged. Panelists will also discuss handling periods of transitions in leadership roles, including staff changes at the manager or assistant level and the role of Interim Manager.

Discussion will be led by Jennifer Clough, Village Administrator for Lake in the Hills.  Panelists will include:
Paula Hewson, Assistant Village Manager, Schaumburg
Diana Mikula, Assistant Village Manager, Arlington Heights
Jim Norris, Village Manager, Hoffman Estates
Rob Sabo, Assistant City Manager, Highland Park
Sharon Tanner, Assistant Village Manager, Glencoe

Please join the Metro Managers for the November Luncheon:  Tales from the Springfield Range-What Can We Learn from Outgoing Legislators?

A mass exodus of state legislators is about to occur in the Illinois House of Representatives.  Veteran legislators Elaine Nekritz, Carol Sente and David Harris will participate in a panel discussion about their roles in the state house, how we can support our legislators and encourage innovation at the state level, and their vision of the future of the state of Illinois.

Come have lunch with colleagues in the Metro Managers Association and learn more about how to effectively navigate the statehouse from these veteran legislators.
