CGFOA 2nd Quarter Event

The day begins with a session called Building a High-Performing Team, lead by Karen Main Workshop at 9:00 AM.
If you operate within a team environment, whether for work, volunteer efforts, community involvement or at home, you know that there are times when the team hums along and other times when it clunks. Teams are not static but are ever-changing, especially as new problems are thrown at the team or when members are added or replaced.
Your team probably works great when it’s operating in its comfort zone. But what happens when change comes quickly? What happens when a member announces they are leaving? Or when conflict erupts? What happens if you don’t have the technical skills to solve the problem?
Understanding the core elements that make for a strong team will help you in times of change. This interactive session will introduce you to the elements of high-performing teams. Through an interactive problem-solving activity, you’ll better discover your team strengths and where your team can improve.
By participating in this interactive session, participants will:
1. Understand the elements that characterize high-performing teams
2. Improve your ability to flex as a team member to better contribute to the needs of the group
3. Increase communication and participation among members
Major Topics Covered:
Team building principles, communication skills, problem-solving skills, self-awareness, awareness of others.

At Noon, CGFOA will host the 2nd Quarter Networking Luncheon of 2017. Spend some time getting to know Board members or fellow professionals in CGFOA! The lunch provides a great opportunity to invite a colleague that is not a member of CGFOA so they can learn more.

Finally, at about 1:00 PM, CGFOA will host the second Board meeting of 2017. All Board meetings are open and we encourage you to join us. This is your organization and your input is important as we continue move through the 2017 CGFOA year.

On Friday, April 28, the 2017 Conference Committee convenes for it's first planning meeting of the year. With a new committee structure and a new approach to the 2017 conference, this is sure to be a great planning meeting for the 2017 conference in Colorado Springs.

Register for one, two or all four components, it's all free and yes, you can earn CPE credit (3) for your participation in the Teambuildingl Workshop.

Be sure to indicate which components of the event you will attend so we have correct numbers for lunch.
