KAC 2021 New Commissioners’ Orientation originally scheduled for in-person on January 14-15, 2021 at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Topeka has been replaced with a virtual orientation event due to safety concerns related to COVID-19. KAC is planning to host a series of virtual Zoom educational sessions in January 2021 to provide Kansas county commissioners with the opportunity to learn from experienced educators about best practices and avoiding the pitfalls of governance.

Here’s a sampling of the topics to be offered:
• A Commissioner’s Roles & Responsibilities
• History & Traditions of County Government
• Running & Participating in Effective Meetings
• Ensuring Transparency/Complying with the Kansas Open Meetings Act
• Ethics & Conflicts of Interest
• Managing External & Internal Relationships
• Assessing Risks & Protecting Your County
