This summer, members of the California City Management Foundation (CCMF) will be presenting at the League of California Cities’ (LOCC) Mayors and Council Members Executive Forum in Monterey, California. Dan Keen (City Manager of Vallejo), Rod Gould (Former City Manager of Santa Monica), and Jan Perkins (Former City Manager of Fremont) are scheduled to speak at the “How to Set Goals for City Manager Performance Evaluations” panel on Wednesday, June 28. CCMF President Wade McKinney will moderate the discussion, which will begin at 4:15PM.
Establishing a set of meaningful performance goals that are mutually agreed-upon by the city manager and the city council is the best way to ensure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to an evaluation. The panel will discuss the best methodology for arriving at this goal and what key steps are necessary for success. During the session, attendees will learn how to approach setting reasonable and specific performance goals for their city manager, as well as some high-level examples of performance objectives.
The Mayors and Council Members Executive Forum is a valuable opportunity for elected officials of all tenures. For two days, attendees will take part in educational sessions that address the challenges that cities face. Moreover, conference participants can discuss cutting-edge approaches to handling all types of situations and explore a wide range of topics that are pertinent to California’s diverse local governments.
