Building Better: Be a Bridge, not a Barrier: Managing the partnership with your board and staff

September 8, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDT

The District Manager is the central pillar balancing two sides of a bridge with the Board and staff at opposite ends. When one side is stronger or pulls harder, the central pillar has to figure out how to create balance so the entire bridge doesn’t collapse. Join us for a discussion with your peers on how to build a stronger sense of partnership with your Board and staff and learn ways to effectively manage your Board for success. Why? Because when the entire organization is pulling in the same direction, your District becomes even more effective, success is more satisfying, and conditions are more pleasant for all!

We will also be joined by special guest (and almost retired) Dr. Carol Smith, Executive Director of the Washington State Conservation Commission. Carol will share her leadership and management journey and share words of wisdom on how to develop your skills to build stronger teams. This is one you won’t want to miss!
