1:30 - 2:45 p.m. Small discussion groups
Griffith Room & Gathering Rooms 1-3
Groups to choose from:

  • Capstone Problem-Solving Model: This workshop will teach the seven-step problem-solving model process that is used in the Capstone Project. Participants will learn how to use a Cause and Effect Diagram and Force-field Analysis tool in analyzing problems. (Terri Callahan) - Griffith Room
  • Amp Up Your Presence: In our busy world, we are bombarded with information, demands, worries and many things pulling at us for attention. Our minds are going a million miles a minute, diluting down our ability to focus in the moment. This course discovers how we can be fully present in the moment and how that can help us be more effective, more attentive, and more relational in our work and in our personal lives. (Andy Huckaba) - Gathering Room #1
  • Monkey Management: Lessons in Managing: Ever feel like there is just too much on your plate at work? Do issues seem to come to you from all directions and eat up your work week? Are you spending time at the office that you would rather be spending with your family or at home? This workshop will identify one of the big sources of workplace time eaters and give you practical ways to deal with them. We will take a serious, yet whimsical, look at monkey management, as discussed in the books “The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey,” by Kenneth Blanchard, William Oncken, Jr. and Hal Burrows and “Managing Management Time” by William Oncken, Jr. This workshop is about more than just “working smart.” This workshop will forever change the way you manage what (or who) lives on your desk. (Evelyn Eubank) - Gathering Room #2
  • MPA/Continuing Your Education Information Session: Has CPM gotten you thinking about pursuing a graduate degree? Would you like to learn more about the KU Master of Public Administration degree or the MPA more generally? Join Noel for a conversation to help you determine whether it’s wacky or wise to consider more education right now (hint: it’s almost always wise) and how to decide what degree program is the right fit. We can discuss the MPA v. the MBA, the pros and cons of other degree programs you might be considering, and how to get started for those who are ready to apply. All questions are welcome. (Noel Rasor) - Gathering Room #3

2:45 - 3:05 p.m. Break
Griffith Room

3:05 - 4:00 p.m. - Closing Presentation: "E-Portfolios" & Networking Activity

Speaker: Jonathan Morris
Activity Facilitators: Terri Callahan & Jonathan Morris

4:00 p.m. to whenever: Networking at the Oread's Nest (optional)
We encourage you to block this time on your calendar and get to know new colleagues or visit with "old" friends. The Oread is offering their custom Mojito for $5 (usually $7) – just let them know you’re with CPM. (If the weather is bad, you can enjoy your cocktails in the Bird Dog Bar's "soft seating area.”)

6:00 p.m. to whenever: Networking Dinner (optional)
Due to space limitations, there are separate dinner locations booked for the CPM current students + alumni and the LELA current students + alumni. We’ve booked the spaces, but dinner is dutch. Contact Alecia Gray by Monday, May 30 to indicate your interest in participating.


Wednesday, June 15

8:15 - 8:45 a.m. Continental Breakfast with Networking Activity
Griffith Room

8:45 - 10:00 a.m. Presentation: "History Swings: American PA"
Griffith Room
Speaker: Charles Jones, retired director of the Kansas University Public Management Center; Lecturer, KU School of Public Affairs and Administration

10:00 - 10:20 a.m. Break
Griffith Room

10:20 - 11:35 a.m. Presentation: “Working in a Diverse Environment: The Paradox of Rules and Authority”
Griffith Room
Speaker: Dr. Shannon Portillo, Associate Professor, KU School of Public Affairs and Administration; Twitter: @Prof_SP
Session Description: Even in rule-bound work environments, the experiences of women and people of color differ from their white male counterparts. Unable to rely on implicit social status as a base for authority, they rely instead on rules. The very meaning of their authority is different: more rules-based and formal. It is also more open to challenge. People of color and women thus face the paradox of rules: They must rely on formal rules as a basis for their authority, but relying on rules makes their authority seem artificial. This session presents data from workers, and a discussion of implications for workplaces. (PDF of presentation)

11:35 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Lunch

The Oread has several places you can explore for lunch. Or Downtown Lawrence is a great place for a bite!

1:30 - 2:45 p.m. Small discussion groups
Griffith Room & Gathering Rooms 1-2
Groups to choose from:

  • Intentional Policing: Performance Management for the 21st Century: You do not have to be in law enforcement to attend this group discussion. Increasingly, law enforcement is confronted with the difficult task of providing clear and concise reports on the performance of new and innovative programs. Measuring and reporting performance can be challenging, and this session will help unpack and explain some of the ways in which that performance can be measured. Through an analysis of previous studies of performance across the country, we will review and apply the lessons of performance measurement and management to the practice of law enforcement in Kansas. Additionally, interactive and facilitated discussion will be conducted to share best practices, collaborative techniques, and strategies for measuring performance. (Peter Federman & Jonathan Morris) - Griffith Room

Our minds are going a million miles a minute, diluting down our ability to focus in the moment.

Speaker: Carol Gonzales, City Manager, City of Shawnee, KS

Parking Resources & Options / Construction Information

  • Construction: There is some construction going on around The Oread, so it would be a good idea to plan your route using the City's interactive construction map.
    • Additionally, one of our very own CPM students created this handy image of the area so you could see the good access points. Thank you, Mark!
  • The Oread Hotel, where the conference is, will provide valet parking. Event parking at The Oread is $5/car for guests attending the event (per day, must be paid daily) and $15/car for overnight guests.
  • The KU Parking Map (PDF) includes parking meters and lots.
  • The Mississippi Street Garage is connected to the Kansas Union, which is adjacent to where the conference is at the Oread Hotel. If you look for the Mississippi Street Garage on the KU Map, it's at about K3 and is an orange block with a listing of MISSPG.
  • Visitor parking prices (and other information) is on the KU Parking website. (The Mississippi Garage is $1.75 for the first hour or any portion of an hour and $1.50 per hour for all subsequent hours.) If you need to talk to the Parking Office (785-864-PARK) during their office hours, their hours are listed at the bottom of their website.
  • Paying for the Mississippi Garage can be done by credit card as you exit or by cash payment through the machines located on the 4th level of the parking garage in the stairwell/elevator area.
  • Please do not attempt to park in any of the apartment complex lots adjacent to The Oread or in any of the lots on campus (other than the parking garage) as these are heavily enforced restricted lots and you will be ticketed and/or towed.
