Virtual Workshop:  Building the Board Chair and Manager Connection

Speakers: 
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
