The theme for this year’s event is, “How to find, hire, and retain men and women into public service.” This forum is a great opportunity to meet and engage with local city managers from Dunedin, Pinellas Park, and Tarpon Springs. Discover why and how they chose to enter into public service. Our guest panelists will share their insight, knowledge, and first-hand experiences about working in public service and in government. The guest panelists include:
- Jeff Kronschnabl – Keynote Speaker
- Jennifer Bramley – Dunedin City Manager
- Douglas Lewis – Pinellas Park City Manager
- Mark LeCouris – Tarpon Springs City Manager
- Professor Roy Slater – Moderator
Local governments have excellent career options available and these agencies offer rewarding careers with competitive salaries and benefits. With low unemployment rates, local governments are faced with the added challenge of competing with the public sector for recruiting and retaining qualified personnel. According to the survey findings in the 2018 State and Local Government Workforce: 2018 Data and 10 Year Trends Report, 82 percent report that staff recruitment and retention is a top workforce priority.
Mark your calendar for Nov. 13 and come listen, meet and network with our guests. Learn first-hand how working in public service and in local government can be very rewarding!
