In addition to helping familiarize voters, the Mock Election also allows the Clerk's Office to test equipment for the upcoming municipal election.

Canoeing the Mountains by Tod Bolsinger: Discussing Leadership in the Modern World

Canoeing the Mountains by Tod Bolsinger: Discussing Leadership in the Modern World

Cover: Canoeing the Mountains by Bolsinger
Main Library
Lifelong Learning Center
Thursday, September 26 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
In May, 1804, Lewis and Clark set out on a two year journey to discover the Northwest Passage. What they learned was that their maps and all their prior assumptions were wrong; the waterway that they thought should cut across the United States to the Pacific Ocean did not exist. Instead, these two water experts were forced to adapt to a landscape of mountains and forests. Tod Bolsinger, author of Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory, uses this legendary journey as a metaphor for a style of leadership that is needed in a modern world filled with complex problems, no easy solutions, and no obvious answers. The Reverend Dr. Clark Cowden will lead a conversation focused on Bolsinger's book. He will discuss how traditional models of leadership are slow to adapt to the contemporary landscape of many organizations and what you can learn to survive and thrive as a leader.
