County Supervisors to Turn Instructors at CSAC Institute
Focus of Exciting, New Course: "Leadership at the Intersection of Politics and Policy"
County Supervisors Ken Yeager and Matt Rexroad will turn instructors later this month when they teach an exciting new course for the CSAC Institute for Excellence in County Government.
Titled “Leading at the Intersection of Politics and Policy,” this course which will help county officials integrate practical politics, personal leadership and effective governance.
The class is an energetic discussion of the balance governing board members must maintain at the intersection of politics and policy.
Conversation topics include strategies for expressing and encouraging dissent in board discussions, civility in public debate, handling intense passion or political pressure, surviving a split vote, how to work with those who oppose your interests, representing board decisions in which you disagreed … and other leadership challenges. It’s ideal for County Supervisors, elected officials and all those who serve on or for boards.
Dr. Ken Yeager is the District Four County Supervisor in Santa Clara County. Matt Rexroad is the District Three County Supervisor in Yolo County. Working together, they will bring vastly different unique perspectives to the discussion.
The course will be held from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, at the CSAC Conference Center in Sacramento. The registration fee is $129, which includes lunch and materials.
