This survey is an inventory ofhistoric structures that is used to assist city & state officials,researchers, and property owners in planning for the protection,preservation, interpretation, and promotion of important cultural andarchitectural resources.The area of the City being researched this year is between South Prospectand South Willard streets south of Main Street in the city’s Hill Sectionneighborhood.

Four ways to get executive buy-in to your creative ideas

first_imgby: Alex CastleySince the Next Top Credit Union Executive competition, people have asked me how to get buy-in from their executive team for some of their creative ideas.  I’m lucky enough that the executive management at my Credit Union allows for creativity to flow and has given us the freedom to execute on some of the zany stuff we have done.  But it wasn’t always so easy.  When we made our first Banks? No Thanks! video, it was met with a certain level of skepticism from most people.  The CEO was encouraging, but there was hesitation from most as YouTube and social media were not ‘things’ we had done before.  To help you get your zany, innovative ideas accepted, I’ve compiled a list of four ways to get executive buy-in to your creative ideas.Hire the right executive team.  Okay, maybe it’s not your choice.  But having a strong supportive executive team to begin with is critical!Do your homework.  Who can you engage with your idea?  What benefits might it have?  What is your Credit Union missing out on? For us, we knew we needed to pay attention to the younger demographic for sustainability.  Yet, all of our existing touch points with potential members were through channels focused on an older demographic (e.g., newspaper).  To attract a younger demographic, we needed to do something different. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Purposeful Talent Development: Leading a virtual team

first_imgIn today’s workforce, we have both on-site staff and remote staff. In our current climate and precautions surrounding COVID-19, working remotely has become a necessity for as many people as possible. Leading a remote workforce requires some different skills than managing in person, including setting up different expectations and managing different interactions. Whether there is a short- or long-term need for you to manage remote staff, you may need new ways to manage workflows, workloads, collaboration and keeping staff connected.Here are a few tips for leaders managing remote workers:Leverage technology. Be sure you understand what technologies are available and ensure that your team members have access to them and know how to use them. Several platforms support instant messaging and virtual calls, including GoToMeeting, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, Google Hangouts and Skype for Business. Some of these are free to leverage amid COVID-19 and some may be included in software you already utilize.Set expectations. Clearly set out the expectations you have for your team, especially any that may not be used to working from home. Discuss whether the change in environment—and the change in society–means adapting working hours, timelines, meetings or other collaboration. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Violence at Rivers casino far overstated

first_imgThere are a couple of points I would like to make in regards to Graham Higgins’ May 15 letter, “Dems brought us bad casino decision.” His reference to the charging of sports groups over $200 for each police car that has to be called to the field due to a disturbance is indeed a travesty. But if he wants the fee to be expanded to cover the casino. Why not expand it to cover all disturbances at any commercial establishment? Why discriminate against sports groups or the casino? By the way, what are we paying taxes for anyway? Also, his statement: “I believe we now have a casino teetering on lawlessness” is a gross exaggeration. There have been melees at other venues such as sports stadiums, etc., and they have never been branded as “places teetering on lawlessness.”I’m a frequent visitor of Rivers casino. Their security department and its procedures for maintaining a safe environment and for handling incidents are exemplary.Paul FoxSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, music Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
