Virtual Workshop:  Building the Board Chair and Manager Connection

Christell Bechtold, CPS HR
Scott Carroll, CSDM, Costa Mesa Sanitary District
Kyle Packham, Director of Advocacy and Public Affairs, CSDA

The partnership between board chair and chief executive establishes a foundation for effectively implementing the policy and strategic direction for the district. Governance and management should complement each other and can only do so by building a solid working relationship. Developing open lines of communication, mutual trust, and a common understanding of roles and responsibilities are essential components to having a genuine board chair and manager connection. The key topics covered during the program will include the following:
• Building a culture of common understanding, shared purpose, and commitment that is mission-driven
• Creating a working relationship that values mutual respect, trust, and support
• Evaluating working styles and leadership strengths through assessment
• Establishing common understanding of roles, responsibilities, and relationships 
• Outlining governance relationships between district board and staff members
• Identifying current and anticipated trends facing leaders of special districts
