Inspiring Leaders with Dr. Scott Paine
July 6: Conflicts with Personnel: Professional, not Personal

Join Dr. Scott Paine and special guest speakers the second Thursday of every month for a virtual forum to discuss hot topics in ethics, leadership and public opinion. This month we are joined by attorneys, Jay Daigneault and Randy Mora to talk municipal personnel – specifically, conflicts with personnel.

Councilmembers, mayors and municipal staff don’t always see eye-to-eye. Because the performance of senior staff affects the public interest, the concerns a municipality’s elected leadership might have about personnel often must play out in public meetings. How can such matters be addressed legally and ethically? Join us for an engaging discussion about how best to handle personnel matters without getting personal. 

Active Shooter Awareness (with the FBI)
July 19: Active Shooter Awareness (with the FBI)

Florida has encountered several incidents in recent times where local governments have needed to respond to active shooters. Knowing what to do saves lives. Join your colleagues for a one-hour awareness webinar on what to do when faced with an active shooter. Designed for individuals and businesses, this online opportunity is offered in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Presenting your Budget to the Public

August 8: Presenting Your Budget to the Public

One of the toughest jobs city staff and officials face each year is making sense of the municipal budget for a variety of audiences. Fiscal hawks, community activists, local business owners . . . each citizen has a unique perspective. Yet few understand the budget and the challenges you face. Join Dr. Scott Paine and Michelle Bono of Bono Communications & Marketing, LLC as they explore what to say, how to handle questions, and how to think of the budget presentation as an opportunity for constructive civic engagement.

Offered in partnership with FCCMA
