Here’s what others have said about our trainings…
Our Planning Commission Chair and Co-Chair both expressed to me that they felt this was the best training for Commissioners they’ve attended. This class will definitely help us all better prepare for and lead more efficient and effective Commission meetings.
Kellye Hilde, Deputy Director of Community Development, City of Sammamish
Ann understands the value of good governing. She takes what is complicated and boils it down to the essentials and most practical.
Jon Mutchler, former Mayor, City of Ferndale
Ann takes what could be a dreary and dry topic and makes it relevant and dare I say, fun! Truly, we have already put the training to good use in our meetings. The structure provides both a level of professionalism and efficiency that has really helped us address our work better. Somewhat surprisingly, the use of Robert's Rules, while sometimes feeling overly formal, actually helps all voices to be heard while arriving at a decision.
Sam Gibboney, Executive Director, Port of Olympia
