Many of you in Council Grove and surrounding areas are members of a board. I know; I see you at the meetings. But, if you are like me, it can be tricky to understand your roles and duties and, most importantly, how to do your best for the organization(s) that you now serve.
This is why I am so excited that the Council Grove Area Trade & Tourism Association, in partnership with the Flint Hills District K-State Research and Extension, are bringing this BOARD LEADERSHIP BASICS training to our area.
WELCOME A-BOARD is a four-week training program that covers a number of topics to help board members and their organizations become more effective in their efforts. Sessions will be held in the Morris County Courthouse Meeting Room from 11:30am - 1:00pm. Lunch will be provided each week for a $10 suggested donation.
