Leading by Example in a Toxic Climate

It is a challenging time to be a local elected official. Rampant negative social media, lack of trust in government, and the erosion of the democratic ideal are making it harder for elected officials to conduct their business and serve their communities. What can you do? How can you make a difference?

Join Ann Macfarlane for a lively exploration of how to fulfill your duty to your city and your constituents by controlling the only thing under your control – your own behavior during meetings and outside of them. With the right attitude and the right tools, you can lead by example, no matter how toxic the climate.
