The Gravely Group recently presented two of our signature trainings at the Native American Child and Family Conference (NACFC), presented by the Southwest Consortium of Indian Head Start Programs, held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The NACFC serves as a forum for Native American Head Start staff to share information, discuss relevant issues, concerns, new ideas and program changes and build networks for supporting the work they do in their local programs. The four-day conference has many different trainings, including two of my own: “Successful Program Governance Strategies” and “Managing Successful Governance Meetings.”

I recently attended The Governance Institute Program for Florida Head Start Association. I presented two workshops, as well as presented during the closing session.

  • Program Governance: Ensuring Program Success in Changing Times
  • Conducting Effective Meetings: New and Improved Policy Council & Board Meetings
  • Closing Session Speaker: The History of Head Start and Parent Engagement: Where Do We Go from Here?

According to the FHSA website,

“The Fall Governance Institute is a great opportunity for Policy Council and Board Members to learn about Shared Governance, Meeting Management, Effective Communication Skills and other topics critical to managing a successful program.

This professional development event is intended for Policy Council and Board Members (new as well as those who have served previously) as well as Grantee Directors, Agency Management and staff with governance responsibilities.”

I had a great time in Florida with the FHSA. Check out my photos from the event below.
