Evaluating Manager and Board Performance

Evaluating Manager and Board Performance will be held February 25, 2022 as a Hybrid course where attendees can join the class live or online via Zoom.  

Local elected boards and their county and municipal managers work interdependently to lead and govern their communities. To be successful, both parties must have a common understanding of their roles and responsibilities, be clear in defining expectations, and know how they will be held accountable. Regular, constructive feedback is important to meeting community expectations and assuring that both the elected and appointed officials are working towards common goals. Participants who complete this program will learn how to develop a successful board self-assessment and manager evaluation process, customize an evaluation process that works for their jurisdiction, and how to avoid common pitfalls.

Attendees:

This focused, practical course is designed for new and experienced municipal council members and county commissioners. Other members of your governing team, including your manager, clerk, and attorney, are encouraged to attend.

Program Topics:

  • Clarifying expectations for public managers and governing boards
  • Selecting and constructing evaluation tools for managers and boards
  • Planning and sequencing the evaluation process
  • Avoiding common pitfalls with performance evaluations
