Calling all board chairs and vice chairs, VACo’s 2019 Chairpersons’ Institute is fast approaching! Hosted at the VACo Training Center on February 1-2, 2019, the Institute will offer an educational experience carefully tailored to the needs of community leadership.
Board chairs and vice chairs must be active leaders who encourage teamwork and manage conflict; they must be confident problem solvers as well as visionary leaders. While these skills cannot be developed overnight, the Institute provides a strong foundation upon which to build.
Developed by a committee of experienced county officials, the Chairpersons’ Institute provides an opportunity to study practical strategies in critical areas like budgeting, communication, and goal setting. If you want to learn more about the structure and functions of county government, active leadership, communications, meeting management, decision making, and coalitions building, then this is the course for you.
