The Office of Neighborhood Services will be holding another event in its successful and informative Neighborhood Training series. This one is on succession planning: that is, how the current group of neighborhood council officers will be replaced by the newly elected group of officers following this year’s voting process (which most councils typically hold in January).
Incidentally, Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council holds its annual elections in April.
The succession planning workshop will take place on Monday, January 6 from 6 to 7:30pm at the Northeast Community Center (4001 N. Cook) [map]. It will be a great opportunity to learn how your neighborhood — or any committee, for that matter — can groom new leadership as well as plan for expected and unexpected departures of current leadership.
This is not just for neighborhood chairs or executive committees; it’s open to anyone who’s interested. So please spread the word.
