October ILCMA/IAMMA Professional Development Event & Metro Luncheon

The ILCMA  and IAMMA Professional Development Committees Presents:

Choose Your Own Adventure: Navigating a Winding Career Path

Careers in local government are not always an upward climb. As organizations change, employees change as well, potentially bringing their aspirations into question. What opportunities lay ahead for each of us, and how can we support others in transition, lay the groundwork for our career or charge full-steam into the future?

Please join us for a morning panel and interactive discussion of the following topics:

  • Transitioning from a Manager to a Director or Assistant role
  • Finding your way to the corner office via alternative paths
  • When being ‘at the top’ doesn’t fit expectations right now
  • Realizing your true calling is not where you began your journey
  • Supporting transitions in your organizational “map”
  • Becoming a trusty guide for other local government travelers

Please join the Metro Managers for the October Luncheon: Illinois State Comptroller-Leslie Munger

In 1970, Illinois’ latest constitution established the Comptroller as an elected officer in the Executive Branch of state government. Illinois citizens select the state’s Comptroller in statewide elections. By law, the Comptroller is the state’s Chief Fiscal Control Officer, responsible for the legal, efficient, and effective operations of state government.

Speaker: Leslie Geissler Munger – In January 2016, Leslie was appointed Illinois State Comptroller. Comptroller Munger is a native Illinoisan, earning her bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois and her master’s degree from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She is a former brand management business executive with Unilever Helene Curtis, where she led the $800 million U.S. Hair Care business.  She is an active community leader and volunteer, and was honored as Lincolnshire’s Citizen of the Year in 2004. Comptroller Munger plans to update Metro Managers on the State of Illinois budget and financial situation and activities in Springfield.
