Each January, the Association hosts Leading Your County Governing Board: An Orientation for County Board Chairs. This one-day training provides an overview on the legal responsibilities and duties for chairs and vice chairs, how to run a meeting, tips for building and maintaining effective relationships, and advice on becoming an effective communicator not only with the media, but with the community. While this program is designed for board chairs and vice chairs, all commissioners will benefit from the training. County managers, clerks to the board, and county attorneys are also encouraged to attend.
New for 2020: Purchase will include a pre-recorded overview on legal responsibilities and duties available the week of December 16.
The next Leading Your County Governing Board orientation will be held at the same location on Wednesday, January 13, 2021. It will be followed by the Legislative Goals Conference (January 14-15, 2021).
