Maximizing the Success of Board/Chief Executive Relations

Image of Maximizing the Success of Board/Chief Executive Relations Different local agencies use different names for the chief executive officer: city manager, city or county administrator, chief executive officer, and executive director are among a few. A positive working relationship between the governing board and the chief executive is essential to a well-functioning organization.

The materials at right were prepared for a seminar that examined how to build and sustain this relationship.  They are in the process of being revised to reflect the discussions and presentations (from elected officials and staff) at the event. 

Input from all segments of the local government community are welcome as as well.  If you have suggestions on how to improve this as a resource for local officials, please share them with the Institute.  Email or fax suggestions to 916.444.7535 (Subject: Board/CEO Relations).
