City hosts training course to improve governance with local agencies receiving City funding
The City of Kansas City, Mo., will host a free Governance Summit training course for senior level executives who work for entities that receive City funding. The course will take place on Wednesday, May 30 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. at the Kauffman Conference Center, 4801 Rockhill Road. It is the sixth in a series of annual classes the City is sponsoring to improve governance and better engage with agencies receiving City funding.
“The City hosts these training courses to ensure that funding provided to these entities is effectively utilized to benefit residents,” said City Manager Troy Schulte. “These courses also provide the opportunity for entities to gather in one location, where they can share best practices in their areas of expertise.”
The Governance Summit will feature many speakers and topics, including: HUD funding, ethics, Davis/Bacon compliance, internal controls for small entities, safety, media relations, Missouri Sunshine Law, environmental issues, security and nonprofit governance. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and bring up concerns.
“We will introduce summit participants to professionals who they might call on for assistance at a later date when ‘real world’ issues present themselves,” said Roy Greenway, the City’s internal auditor. “For example, we are very grateful to Dr. H. Danny Weaver, president and CEO of Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, for sharing his work experiences with us.”
The Summit is sponsored by the City with support from the Kauffman Conference Center.
