WIMS Bi-Annual Leadership Retreat

 

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT 

for WIMS Officers & Committee Members

New officers and officer-elect positions are announced in late spring, serving for one year beginning with the Annual Awards & Recognition Dinner in August every year, transitioning into their official role the following August. Committee chairs are appointed annually and also begin at the August dinner.  All are introduced at the Annual Dinner in August.  We believe in providing proper training including job descriptions and expectations and professional development skills training required to succeed in leadership roles and while serving as productive and successful committee members. Our Beiannual Leadership Retreat is a professional development half-day program which provides for additional information about WIMS infrastructure, committee responsibilities and committee chair job descriptions. The estimated 60 women invovled includes many of the outgoing officers and members along with the incoming new participants.  During the retreat they discuss the issues and goals for the upcoming year, progress made in the past year, and recommendations for improvement, programs and growth.  Each retreat provides invited guests who address applicable topics to help accomplish the mission of the organizaiton. 

HOLD THE DATE - August 19, 2016 Retreat

The retreat plans are underway and if you have ideas or would like to get involved behind the scenes, please contact Christie Befort, PhD, the FY16 WIMS President today.


August, 2014 Retreat

Leadership Skills: Learning Strategies to Run Organizations and Committees

SPEAKER: Adam Carroll, The Carden Group and The Jayhawk Way Training Team

GOAL: Train or enhance the WIMS leaders and committee members on skills needed to strengthen and improve the organizational operation of WIMS so they may also apply the skills to other areas of their professional lives.

DESCRIPTION: Effective committees can be one of the most important working forces at the heart of an organization. The purpose and objectives of a committee may be clear, but as with any group trying to achieve a common goal, many factors may determine success or failure. Adam Carroll will facilitate the why and how of committees to ensure they function well and achieve the goals set. Highlights will include: how to chair, and not chair a committee meeting; how to serve as a valuable committee member; what you can bring to the table; how can you gracefully guide a meeting under the control of a poor committee chair so the group can reach its goals; and much more.

Leadership Skills: Budget 101 - The KUMC Global Budget System

SPEAKER: Mike Keeble, Associate Vice Chancellor of Finance, Division of Institutional Finance and Administration

GOAL: Train or enhance the WIMS leaders and committee members on skills needed to strengthen and improve the organizational operation of WIMS so they may also apply the skills to other areas of their professional lives.

DESCRIPTION: Understanding budgets is one thing, understanding the KUMC budget system, where all the money comes from and goes, and how the WIMS budget fits in the global picture will be explained and simplified by our guest. This information will be invaluable when working with the organization, or on any budget members may work with in their normal job responsibilities at KUMC.
