On the last week of October, the MACOG Board of Directors will hold its first ever virtual Professional Development Retreat. An annual event and training activity for RPC Executive Directors, the MACOG Board continues to be socially responsible during this time of pandemic but remains committed to fulfill its obligation to its federal and state agency partners for ongoing professional development. The retreat will include important dialogue sessions with several partner organizations and specific training sessions on County CARES Act funding and the latest best practices in remote-work opportunities. “The annual MACOG Board Professional Development Retreat is an outstanding opportunity for the RPC Executive Directors to learn from not only each other but national experts as well.” said Linda Conner, MACOG President & Executive Director of the Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments.
