Conducting Effective Meetings
Conducting public business requires managing the issues that come before a public body. Building an agenda, promoting useful discussion, and providing a structure for decision-making are key goals for an effective meeting and for effective public officials. The instructor also covers the proper use of organized rules of order – known as parliamentary procedure – which allow all voices to be heard but with debate that remains focused and civil.
Speaker: Jack A. Gullo, Jr., Attorney, Taneytown, Rising Sun & Poolesville; Jack A. Gullo, Jr. Law Office
Moderator: The Honorable MC Keegan-Ayer, Council Member, Frederick County
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 15, 2018; 1:45 pm – 3:15 pm
County Financial Management
A challenge faced by new and veteran county officials is understanding and using the government budget process, the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, and other financial documents effectively as tools for setting priorities and managing the government while maintaining the fiscal integrity of the jurisdiction. Fiscal management can be infused with economic assumptions, technical jargon, and a process that seems foreign to the uninitiated. In this class, a veteran public administrator discusses the budget process and financial reporting, as well as giving practical tips for county officials.
Speaker: Ted Zaleski, Director of Management & Budget, Carroll County
Moderator: The Honorable Jack Wilson, Commissioner, Queen Anne’s County (R)
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 15, 2018; 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
