Regional Visits Scheduled in August, September

By Heather Lee, Project Manager

As shared during the June “FD Updates” webinar, FD leadership will soon be making "the rounds" to every region of the state. The purpose of these meetings will be for FD leadership to do the following:
  • Engage with the entire range of FD staff in each region.
  • Answer questions about the 2014 Employee Engagement Survey.
  • Learn more about each region’s “grand” challenges, including building on the culture and diversity discussion from April’s conference.
Regional visits are planned for the following dates and locations:

  • Tuesday, August 11 (11:30 a.m.–4 p.m.) — Willmar
  • Wednesday, August 12 (10 a.m.–2:30 p.m.) — Detroit Lakes
  • Thursday, August 13 (10 a.m.–2:30 p.m.) — Grand Rapids
  • Friday, August 14 (9 a.m.–1:30 p.m.) — Owatonna
  • Wednesday, September 23 (10 a.m.–2:30 p.m.) — Andover
  • Thursday, September 24 (10 a.m.–2:30 p.m.) — Minneapolis
  • Tuesday, September 29 (10 a.m.–2:30 p.m.) — St. Paul
While we know that this is a popular time for staff to take vacations, we hope to see as many staff members as possible during these regional visits. Even if you’re unable to attend on any of the dates, we expect all staff members to complete the homework assignment that will be assigned on July 28. For this reason, even if you can’t attend one of the events, please complete the registration survey anyway and indicate the region to which you will submit your homework exercise.

Please register now for one of these regional visits. If you are unable to attend the one in your region, register for another location on a date that you are available. Registrations are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 24.
