Local Leader Workshop- Leading Through Adversity

This event has ended.

Do you experience push-back and/or disagreements by citizens when you propose a plan to boost community and economic development? Are you looking for effective ways to communicate the needs of aging infrastructure to your citizens? Are you concerned that your city has lost faith in its leadership? This workshop will focus on the unforeseen challenges of being an elected official or community leader.
