Two hundred years in the making, 2018 will mark the bicentennial of one of the oldest cities in the country, Fort Smith, AR. To help celebrate this historic event, RAM has organized an exhibition by Fort Smith legend and native, John Bell, Jr. (1937-2013).

Bell was an acclaimed American painter and sculptor whose career spanned nearly fifty years. His memories and influences of western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma are the topics reflected in most of his works. Bell had a keen appreciation for the beauty of our state and the character of its people.

This dynamic exhibit will showcase works by John Bell, Jr. that reside in private collections across our region, brought together to honor this truly unique artist and his works, that literally painted our local history.

2018 - "5 Dysfunctions of a Team" Workshop Series

Date: Wednesday, February 14, 2018
Time: 8:00am to 10:00am
Location: Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce Board Room 612 Garrison

Session 1 of a 4 Session Series:
Session 1: Wednesday, February 14
Session 2: Wednesday, February 21
Session 3: Wednesday, February 28
Session 4- Wednesday, March 7

As a "perk" of membership, we are offering a variety of educational opportunities for your business and/or profession throughout the year.   It is our hope that these "Chamber Perk" sessions will help you to grow your business, improve cohesiveness within your teams and ultimately position you and your team for much success in 2018!   There will also be ample time to network and meet other like-minded individuals in our community!  

The "Five Dysfunctions of a Team" by Patrick Lencioni, outlines the root causes of politics and dysfunction on the teams where you work, and the key to overcome them.  Counter to conventional wisdom, the causes of dysfunction are both identifiable and curable. 

Please join us on Wednesday, February 14  for the first session of the 4-session workshop which will provide an in-depth look at dysfunctions within teams and how to best overcome those challenges.  "5 Dysfunctions of a Team" is a book that has been a practical tool in getting teams aligned, breaking down the "silos" within companies/organizations and getting the teams within your organization to move in the same direction.    This workshop will be led by Phillip McClure.  Many may be familiar with Phillip as a class facilitator in our Leadership Fort Smith program which is in its 30th year.  Phillip is a dynamic facilitator and has worked with a number of companies and organizations in our region.  

What will you gain from this workshop series?  

*  Team members will not only reach a common understanding of what it means to be a team, because the workshop is so practical, will also make substantial progress toward becoming a more cohesive team. 
*  Team leaders will improve the cohesion and functioning of their teams by applying the Five Dysfunctions Model.
*  Improving teamwork reduces the stress and dissatisfaction of the people in your organization, which has a profound impact on the lives of their friends and family members as well.
