An Orientation for County Board Chairs

Leading Your County Governing Board: An Orientation for County Board Chairs provides an overview on the legal responsibilities and duties for chairs and vice chairs, how to run a meeting, and tips for building and maintaining effective relationships.

While this program is designed for board chairs and vice chairs, all commissioners can benefit from the training. County managers, clerks to the board, and county attorneys are also encouraged to attend with their board chairs.

County commissioners who attended the December 2020 virtual offering have been awarded two workshop credits toward LELA program recognition.
