CGSC Foundation President/CEO Rod Cox provided welcoming remarks and introduced Mr. Larry A. Hisle, executive director of the Greater Kansas City Federal Executive Board. Hisle led the discussion about the Federal Executive Board’s roles and missions and how it serves as a forum for communication, coordination and collaboration among the various federal agencies with offices in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Hisle’s presentation was attended by students, faculty and staff and a complement of others watching remotely via teleconference.
During his presentation Hisle explained the background of the FEB system and specifically how the Kansas City office conducts its mission through three lines of business – emergency preparedness, security, and employee safety; workforce development; and strategic partnerships. He also explained how the FEB both increases efficiencies and saves taxpayer dollars.
Hisle has served as the executive director of the Greater Kansas City Federal Executive Board since 2013. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Thomas Edison State University. Hisle has previously served as a program manager in the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. He has been an active community volunteer with youth sports teams and scouting activities as well as serving on the board of directors of the Sherwood Center for the Exceptional Child and on the advisory council of the KCK Area Technical School.
