The recruitment of capable and committed prospective directors has become more competitive in the nonprofit sector
“Your opening paragraph states that : It is imperative that the government develop and implement regulations that will ensure that nonprofit organizations employ qualified staff. More importantly, both the board and the public should have the ability to adapt the challenges.
What does government regulation have to do with the recruitment of new board members? What does employing qualified staff have to do with the recruitment of new board members? What does the public’s ability to adapt to challenges have to do with the recruitment of new board members?
Stay focused. Your paper is on how boards can recruit new board members in a more competitive environment? Where can candidates be found? Who should contact them? What should be presented to candidates? Do boards need to lower the requirements for serving on the board in order to enlarge their pool of candidates. These are the questions you should address.”

Leadership styles are often based upon personal characteristics, values, beliefs, and culture. There are many effective leadership styles you can employ in your role in public administration. Such leadership styles include charismatic, participative, situational, transactional, transformational, quiet, and servant leadership. Ineffective leadership styles might include micromanagement or post-hoc management. As you consider your future role in public administration, consider the leadership style you might employ.
For this Discussion, consider your role as the head of a public agency in the virtual community and reflect on an appropriate management style you might employ for this role.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review the article, “New Directions in Public Administration: Serving Beyond the Predictable.” Consider the leadership styles of public administrators.
Review the article, “Fatal Attraction: The Effects of Mortality Salience on Evaluations of Charismatic, Task-Oriented, and Relationship-Oriented Leaders.” Pay particular attention to the leadership styles and how they are effective and how they may be ineffective.
Review the article, “State Government ‘Little Hatch Acts’ in an Era of Civil Service Reform: The State of the Nation.” Think about the types of leaders needed in public administration.
Consider the most appropriate leadership style you would employ for the role of head of a public agency selected and the reasons why you would select this style.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Thursday 3-22-18 a 500-word description of the most appropriate leadership style for your role as the head of a public agency in the virtual community. Explain why this style is most appropriate. Then, explain the importance of selecting and maintaining one leadership style.

Intergovernmental Issues and Budgets
Intergovernmental relations is a system in which multiple government agencies in a common geographical area share power with each other. This system gives substantial power to different levels of government. The result may create conflicts and issues among multiple government agencies, and strong leaders must consider how to manage these conflicts effectively. At times, intergovernmental relations can develop stronger management among multiple government agencies. Consider the following question: Do intergovernmental relations force more collaborative governance in leadership?
One intergovernmental issue to consider is budget cuts. Budgetary constraints and cuts impact not only government agencies but communities as well. For example, if federal funding is cut from educational programs enacted by federal policies and programs, it can force the consolidation of programs and leadership roles. It may also impact communities, forcing public administrators to deal with the community backlash.
For this Application Assignment, review the virtual community and consider how intergovernmental issues such as budget cuts impact leaders and communities.
To prepare for this assignment:
Review the article, “A Mixed Method Look at State Growth Management Policy.” Consider the implications of expanding leadership.
Review the article, “Financing Infrastructure in the 21st Century City.” Think about how budgetary issues impact government agencies and communities.
Review the article, “Adapting Intergovernmental Management to the New Age of Terrorism.” Pay particular attention to the effectiveness of intergovernmental governance in management.
Review the article, “Thinking Harder About Outcomes for Collaborative Governance Arrangements.” Reflect on the impact of intergovernmental management.
Review the video presentation of this week’s news broadcast in the virtual community and the reactions from other parties around town.
Consider how the budget cuts may affect your role as head of a public agency and how you might address the budget cuts or changes in your role.
Consider how intergovernmental issues apply to multiple roles in the community.
The assignment (2 pages) Due by Sunday 3-25-18

Unit I Case Study
Using one of the stage model theories, write a two- to three-page paper applying the stage model theory to a crisis of the 21st century.
Unit II Case Study
A department facing a crisis can easily find itself needing to release warnings to the internal members of the department as well as to those the department serves. Consider the following scenario:
You are the chief operating officer of a 250-member Fire and EMS agency in a suburban area of the United States. Your service area is approximately 150 square miles and includes residential, commercial, and agricultural areas. You are conducting a scheduled meeting with a member of the field staff, Firefighter/Medic John Smith. FF/Medic Smith has just informed you that he is considering filing a lawsuit against the department for lack of action on other members of the department that he claims have been physically harassing and abusing him. He shows you documentation from the last six months of written complaints that he has made to his chain of command and claims that no action has been taken to prevent the behavior, and it continues to happen. He concludes by stating that he has consulted a lawyer to look into his options of lawsuits and media involvement to see something occur.
A search of department records show that there have been no corrective actions taken against the firefighters in question and there is no other documentation of this issue having been dealt with. Using one of the communication and warning methods, write a two- to three-page paper to answer the following questions:
1. Was there a period where warning signs of the crisis could have been recognized? 2. Do messages need to be sent out? If so, what should the messages say, what is the intended audience, and what method should be used to send the message? 3. If messages should be sent, what is the desired outcome once the messages are received? If that outcome does not occur, what additional steps (if any) should be taken?
Unit II Project
For this assignment, you will establish a rough budget for your proposal. At this point, you have determined what your proposal will look like so you will need to identify which type of budget will be most relevant to your proposal. Your textbook offers a sample of each of the two types: project-specific and annual operating. You may use either a spreadsheet or a table to develop your budget for submission.
Key areas that are required include, but are not limited to:
EMS System Design 3
Salaries Materials/supplies Funding/revenue projected
Your budget must be a minimum one page in length, but it could be longer.
Identifying Your Proposal
For this unit, you will identify your program, division, or service that will be developed into a proposal by the end of the course. This may be new or one that you would like to restructure.
For this assignment, you will identify at least one item that will need to be considered relevant to your proposal for each of the following areas:
Initial funding and ongoing financial support Personnel staffing and management needs Training or education (initial or continuing education) Legal, political, or regulatory implications/risks Community integration, information, or stakeholder needs
Your paper should follow APA guidelines for formatting of all resources, both in-text and as references. You should begin your paper with the proposal type and rationale for this choice. Your paper should include a paragraph for each of the areas identified. Your paper should be 1-2 pages in length. You do not need a cover page but should include a separate reference page.
