Registration deadline coming this week for Board Leadership Series

Lyon County Extension's annual Board Leadership Series of seminars will begin later this month.
 
Extension horticulturist and event spokesman Travis Carmichael says the series will bring valuable information for anybody on a board, whether elected or appointed.
 
 
 
 
 
Meetings begin Feb. 26 with a look at roles and responsibilities of effective boards as well as effective meetings. Other dates and topics:
 
*Feb. 28: Finances and fraud
*March 5: Fundraising and strategic planning
*March 7: Conflict resolution and understanding fellow board members
 
There will be one significant difference in how the messages are delivered. Carmichael says prior seminars have been web-based, but this year the presenters will all come to Emporia for their respective talks.
 
The registration deadline is Thursday. For more information, call Extension at 341-3220.
