Athenian Leadership Dialogue Information

OAMR is excited to offer another Athenian Leadership Dialogue during the 2018 Annual Conference. It will be held on Friday, September 21, 2018, at the Holiday Inn @ PDX, 8439 NE Columbia Boulevard, Portland, Oregon. It will be held from 9:45 A.M. to 5:30 P.M., and will be facilitated by Mary Lynne Stratta, MMC, City Clerk for the City of Bryant, Texas

This session will provide three education points for both CMC and MMC candidates on completion of an assessment.  Seating is limited to the first 30 registrants.

Athenian Leadership Dialogues are conversations that go beyond the usual knowledge recall and application process familiar to all recorders in training seminars. They are unique because they explore leadership principles and practice, drawing on the insights contained in a book that all participants have read.

Dialogues are conversations in which recorders share their experience and understanding as it relates to the ideas of the author and the relevance of those ideas to their public leadership role.

The premise of the Athenian Dialogue Society is the idea that recorders are leaders in very profound yet subtle ways. Leadership here is not the transactional vending machine citizens seem to believe about public management. The interest and involvement of the participants, as well as the author's specific focus and emphasis, require that the facilitator move with purpose using language of meaning, feeling, and power. Participants devote six hours to a Dialogue and come away intellectually enriched by this communication experience.

Participation in an Athenian Leadership Dialogue requires the purchase and reading of the book prior to the session. The book selected for this Dialogue is Shoot Like a Girl by Mary Jennings Hegar.  Buy now on AmazonSmile and OAMR will benefit! 

Questions should be directed to Peggy Hawker, at, or by telephone at 541.574.0613.
