Between managing day-to-day operations and the natural curveballs that come your way, it can be easy to miss helpful content that can make your job easier. Take a dive into the ICMA archives for some specially curated resources to help kickstart initiatives in the following topic areas; management, equity and inclusion, and gun violence.
- It is important to keep abreast of federal decisions that could impact your community at a local level. SCOTUS Strikes Down “Proper Cause” Requirement to Carry a Gun in Public, covers just how this Supreme Court decision limits some local government gun regulation.
- The first time you think about how to respond to a mass shooting should never be when you have received a call alerting you that a mass shooting is in progress. Preparedness is key and hosting a tabletop exercise is the single best way to help you think through the unthinkable. The Mass Shooting Protocol and Playbook: Tabletop Exercise template provides guidance for making basic preparedness decisions and can be adapted to meet your community’s needs.
- Having a greater impact on equitable outcomes in your community begins with the programs your organization delivers. In this PowerPoint Presentation from the Approving and Applying Equity Initiatives to Impact Your Community webinar, you will learn how to generate initiatives within each department that will change the nature of how programs are delivered, to increase impact on equity.
- To reinvigorate organizations post-pandemic, ultimate success depends on the actions of mid-managers. Positive change happens in the middle, and Career Compass No. 96: Why We Need Great Mid-Managers More than Ever covers the importance of mid-managers and why local government executive management must begin to redefine the role of mid-managers in their organizations, focus on upskilling, and provide them with much needed support.
