Leadership NOW Symposium 2017

Leadership NOW Symposium 2017
Event on 2017-10-05 08:00:00
Special Event Details O Ethical Bombs – How can I learn from other’s mistakes?             Thursday, October 5, 2017   8:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.             City Centre at Quail Valley – Magnolia Ballroom, 2880 LaQuinta Drive, Missouri City, Texas Our actions are always on display, ripe for evaluation and judgment. If one city manager acts inappropriately, violating ICMA’s Code of Ethics, it impacts the entire profession, undermining our ability to manage and lead. The same is true as when our staff do not live up to the profession’s high standards. What “ethical bombs” do professionals make? What traps do I need to look out for? How do I protect my integrity when a city manager creates controversy that reflects poorly on what I do? This session will answer these questions, reviewing several case studies of “ethical bombs” city managers and their staffs have made throughout the years. Learn tips to avoid these mistakes and how best to address the collateral damage when an “ethical bomb” drops nearby.  Additional areas to be addressed during the session include the following: Why are ethics important in the local government      profession? What are common ethical challenges and how can you      navigate them? What are best practices for promoting ethics in action? What resources are available to support you?   Presenter:  Martha Perego, ICMA Director of Member Services and Ethics Supporters/Sponsors:  City of Missouri City, City of Sugarland, City of Pearland, NFBPA, TCMA, University of Houston, and Texas Southern University. O City and County Managers’ Panel:  “Dealing with Changing Communities and Priorities              Thursday, October 5, 2017   11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.             City Centre at Quail Valley – Magnolia Ballroom, 2880 LaQuinta Drive, Missouri City, Texas Whether this is your second or twenty-second, year in this profession, the benefit of hearing lessons learned and insight from those who have walked in your shoes proves a valuable resource. Our five panelists have multiple years of combined service in local government, and will share stories of their careers, including what has changed since they started in local government and how they’ve addressed it, and how the role of a public administrator may change in the next 20 years, and how best to prepare. Panel:  Gary Jackson, City Manager, Asheville, NC; T.C. Broadnax, City Manager, Dallas, TX; Dale Fisseler, City Manager, Waco, TX; Bruce Moore, City Manager, Little Rock, AR; and Verdenia Baker, County Manager, Palm Beach County, FL, and Allen Bogard, Sugar Land, TX.  O Community Public Policy Keynote & Discussion:  “Raising Awareness and bringing attention to the crisis of the  HIV/AIDS Epidemic”            Thursday, October 5, 2017             2:30 p.m. City Centre at Quail Valley – Magnolia Ballroom, 2880 LaQuinta  Drive, Missouri City, Texas Join key community and corporate partners for a panel discussion that has been organized to raise awareness and bring attention to the ongoing crisis of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

2017 Father’s Day 5K – Dallas

2017 Father’s Day 5K – Dallas
Event on 2017-06-18 08:00:00
*THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE! Join us for our fourth annual FATHER'S DAY 5K virtual race!   It's time to celebrate your World's Best Dad! We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to Team Hoyt, which works to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life. In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.” When: Complete your race any time in June.  Father's Day is June 18, 2017! Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). Why:  Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run (or walk) a 5K in honor of all of the DAD's out there.   We will be donating a portion of each registration fee (at least 15% of each registration) to Team Hoyt. Cost: .  Includes custom medal and bib that will be shipped directly to you. There is also an option to get two medals, to get an extra one to give to the favorite father in your life.   Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Team Hoyt.  *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.* Medals will beginning shipping in May.
