It is grasping the constant change circulating around us. It is respecting and motivating the multi-generations in today’s workforce. It’s leading through the realities that organizations have goals to achieve and that without motivated teams, achieving results would be much more difficult. We all have the ability to lead change, provided we understand how to move with the natural dynamics in hand.

The session will focus on establishing policies and procedures for implementing an identity-theft prevention plan, executing an internal risk audit, and anticipating risks to the public.

These committees work closely with the Census Bureau and reach out to the community in an effort to ensure a complete count of every person residing in that area, since a complete count will benefit cities and the entire state of Texas.

The use of stronger development and building standards with defined masonry requirements for all construction can achieve these goals and many more. Masonry construction is durable, sustainable, requires little to no maintenance, retards fire and wind better, can enhance and stabilize your tax base, and, of course, it is absolutely beautiful. Come and learn how to overcome the political hurdles of developing stronger building standards, and learn about the many benefits of masonry standards from people who have been there and done that.

Pauline Medrano, Deputy Mayor Pro Tem, City of Dallas, and National Census Advisory Committee Vice Chair We’ve come a long way since the first census in 1790, which counted 3.9 million people. Then, the census was taken in the 13 original states plus the districts of Kentucky, Maine, Vermont, and the Southwest Territory (of Tennessee). In the 210 years since the first census, the census has grown to a sophisticated tool. Census
2000, taken April 1, 2000, counted 281,421,906 people in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Using equal portions, each state is assigned one congressional seat (as provided by the Constitution). The apportionment formula then allocates the remaining 385 seats one at a time among the 50 states until all 435 seats are assigned. In addition to apportionment, the decennial census results are used: • to distribute almost $200 billion annually in federal, state, local, and tribal funds; • to draw state legislative districts; • to evaluate the success of programs or identify populations in need of services; and • for many other purposes. 10:10 – 10:50 a.m. Water Issues Facing Texas and the Nation Robert Puente, J.D., President and CEO, San Antonio Water Systems Managing and protecting our water resources is one of the most critical issues facing Texas today.

The study showed this was a substantially underused revenue resource in Texas cities, many ordinances were likely to lose a challenge in the courts because they had not been updated to reflect recent court decisions, and such ordinances are a fiscally conservative approach to financing both the acquisition and the development of parks in Texas.

Studies by Dr. John Crompton of Texas A&M University have established the proximate principle as a measure of value, and the study of the economic impact of parks on jobs released by the Texas Recreation and Parks Society in 2007 showed the impact statewide. Everyone says that parks add value to our communities, but it is often difficult to put a real-life value to our parks. How does this translate down to the real-world level, to a specific city level? What impact does this have in proving the worth of our park systems in tight economic times?

Leadership for Extraordinary Times (continued at 10:30 a.m.) Room 202 A-B on Level 2 Kevin Baum, Principal, InCentergy Consulting Group, Austin Moderator: Leonard Reed, Mayor, City of Willis A wise person once said, “May you live to see extraordinary times…” Congratulations, friends, you made it. In the short time since we turned the millennium, we have seen incredible events take place in the United States and the world. From acts of terrorism, to natural disasters, to the collapse of entire business dynasties, the pace and scale of major events in this century alone have become staggering. How we respond to these events, should they occur on our watch, is what will define us as inspired leaders and organizations, not the fact that they happened while we were in charge. This session will give leaders the necessary tools and skills to Face Failure, rather than Fear Failure. It will demonstrate the inherent power in honesty, so long as we can Name, Claim, and Explain what we are doing in response to major events (as opposed to Name, Blame, and Inflame!).

Being a small city doesn’t minimize the importance of providing your citizens with access to information 24/7 about their local government. Learn how cost-effectively you can have a custom-designed Web site, as well as a citizens-driven branding program, that fits your small city’s budget. Preparing Critical IT Infrastructure Systems for Disasters Room 203 B-C on Level 2 Randy Wright, Director of Public Safety, Portland, Texas, Police Department; and Mike Conduff, President and CEO, The Elim Group, Denton Moderator: Jungus Jordan, Councilmember, City of Fort Worth Weather-related disasters often come with some warning—a few days for a hurricane, a few minutes for a tornado, and sometimes only a few seconds for a flood. Other disasters come with no warning—a damaging fire, an attack in the building, a major power outage. Warning or no warning, preventable or not preventable, during the disaster is NOT the time to be wondering about the integrity and redundancy of your critical information technology infrastructure. In this fast-paced and practical session, policy-makers and practitioners alike will learn which systems are most critical and what they should be doing to protect and use them during a significant disaster.

Participants
will explore the often delicate circumstances that can occur when we observe “performance gaps” between what is expected from others and what actually occurs. Based on the interpersonal psychology of the communication process (what is going on inside of us and others), practical suggestions will be offered to more effectively present criticism and feedback in a manner that has a greater chance of short-circuiting defensive responses while maintaining individual accountability. There are many psychological biases that affect our interpersonal interactions. This can lead us down a path that can result in misinterpretations, excessive emotion, and mixed messages—often leading to less-than-ideal behavior. Every person in a leadership position should be armed with this valuable information.

Within the last decade, however, these development organizations received a rude awakening. It seems that almost overnight, most found themselves facing new and unfamiliar obstacles as more and more manufacturing jobs were moved outside of the U.S. to reduce costs. These once-mighty manufacturing foundations seemed like just a fairy tale, indeed. The good news is that, as in the past, American economic developers have continued to adapt, and development organizations around the country are now finding new ways to boost their local economies in a once often-overlooked field: Retail Recruitment and Development. Join us for our presentation and discover how the right retail recruitment tools and modern strategies can better enable your community to effectively compete.

Exhibitor Guide A Delegate’s Guide to Visiting the TML Exhibition The TML Exhibit Hall will be a very valuable part of your experience at the TML Annual Conference. It is the place to find vendors who are serious about your city’s business. The Exhibit Hall is more than just a place for you to acquire free pens and stick-on fuzzies for your badge. Time spent in the Exhibit Hall is time saved later. It is an opportunity to see new products, acquire new ideas, and decrease your upcoming workload. The Texas Municipal Marketplace is like a shopping mall with everything under one roof at one time. So take advantage of this great opportunity! The following are some guidelines for making the most of your time in the Exhibit Hall.
Plan Your Time Wisely Don’t try to accomplish everything in one visit. Plan several visits – during refreshment breaks or lulls in the program. The TML Grand Opening Reception on Wednesday will also be an excellent opportunity for visiting with exhibitors. Use the Exhibitor Guide to map out your course of action in the Exhibit Hall. Ask questions. Ask for a demonstration. Ask for more information. This is why the exhibitors are at the conference.
Visit Current Suppliers The Exhibit Hall gives you an excellent opportunity to discuss pricing, service, and product development to meet your changing needs. Although new contacts and sales are important to exhibitors, maintaining ties with established customers is an important reason to visit your current suppliers.
Visit Your Supplier’s Competitors The Exhibit Hall provides an opportunity for you to easily check on the competition. Visit with other companies who provide similar services or products and compare.
Visit Potential Suppliers City government is changing rapidly. Your city’s needs are changing, too. Visit companies with services and products you may need in the next few months.
Visit Everyone Else Give yourself the opportunity to make unexpected and pleasant discoveries at the Exhibit Hall. Plan to visit specific companies, but give yourself time to walk the aisles and learn about services and products of companies you may not have considered before. You might discover something to revolutionize your city – or at least part of your job.
Exhibit Hall Hours Please note that the Exhibit Hall is only open during the following hours:
Wednesday, October 21, 2009 Noon – 3:00 p.m. Exhibit Hall Grand Opening Reception
Thursday, October 22, 2009 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Friday, October 23, 2009 8:00 a.m. – Noon
