Build Effective City Council Relationships Webinar

Thursday, June 9, 10:00-11:00 a.m. (central) 

The business of governing and leading your community can be an incredibly stressful and frustrating activity, even in the best of times. Throw in a worldwide pandemic and increasingly polarized politics, and some city council meetings resemble a version of the World Wrestling Federation. Building effective city council relationships is an ongoing challenge that requires focused attention and proven strategies to achieve success.  

With more than four decades of experience working in local government, Jim Hunt will provide real life examples of how to build a foundation of trust and an atmosphere of cooperation in even the most fractured of city councils. 

Our citizens have given us the privilege of representing them and when all voices are heard, the community benefits. Join us for an informative webinar that gives real tools to create effective city council relationships.


The fee is $65. 

Each paid registration gives you one login to the webinar, and it is unique to the individual. You may not share your access information; however, you may gather in a room and share the single connection with others in your city.
