As many seasoned managers will tell you, a positive council-manager relationship is one of the most critical elements of a well-functioning local government. While building and maintaining such a relationship can be a challenging task fraught with potential pitfalls, putting in the hard work will benefit both the manager and the council, as well as the community as a whole. 

In this webinar, you'll join a panel of CAOs from jurisdictions of various sizes across the U.S. and Canada who will share their experiences working with their respective councils. Featured speakers will include:

  • Marc Landry, City Manager of Moncton, NB, Canada and former ICMA Executive Board member
  • Christina Turner, City Manager of Morgan Hill, CA
  • Brandy Reitter, Town Manager of Eagle, CO

Moderating the discussion will be Kevin Duggan, ICMA's former West Coast Regional Director who quite literally wrote the book on council-manager relations. Whether you're trying to improve your own relationship with elected officials or simply want to gain insight into effective strategies for doing so, you won't want to miss this webinar!
