January 2008 COHO meeting

I invited Wayne Cauthen, KCMO City Manager as the main presenter for our January meeting and he has accepted. The meeting will be held on January 4th at 8am at the Tony Aguirre Community Center, 1050 West Pennway Blvd., KCMO. To view the agenda, haz una click aqui.

This invitation follows up on the intent of the reception held for him in November by Mattie Rhodes Counseling and Arts Center, KC Hispanic News and the Hispanic Chamber to welcome Wayne to the Hispanic community and initiate regular communication with him on procurement and employment opportunities with the city.

Wayne A. Cauthen was appointed City Manager of Kansas City, Missouri in April 2003. Mr. Cauthen is currently focusing his efforts on downtown infrastructure and development issues, expanding international economic development, implementing a citywide recycling program, and improving basic services to citizens. Mr. Cauthen brings to the office more than 25 years of professional experience in both the public and private sector.

As the city's chief administrator, the City Manager is responsible for making city government run efficiently and economically. The City Manager serves and advises the mayor and City Council, appoints most department directors and prepares a proposed annual budget for council consideration. The City Manager also enforces municipal laws and ordinances and coordinates city operations and programs.

Our first meeting of 2008 will also include 2 mini presentations:

1.) Lelain Lorenzen, Media Relations & Marketing Coordinator, about MCC-Business & Technology/Line Tech Workers Program (partners are KCP&L, Aquila, and Platte-Clay Electric Cooperative). MCC is aggressively recruiting for this program since 30-50% of line technicians are expected to retire in the next five-10 years.

2) Debra Stanley. Program Coordinator and Matt Milbrodt, Information Service Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau. The 2010 census is gearing up and there are multiple employment opportunities and partnering opportunities available.

Please let me know by return email if you wish to make an announcement at the meeting as very few will be allowed with this agenda.

Nos vemos next year. Until then, be safe and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! - Rita

Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año Nuevo!
