Hosted by: Florida Association of City Clerks
Athenian Dialogue: Eat Mor Chikin by S. Truett Cathy
Facilitated by: Camilla Pitman, MMC, City Clerk, Certified Professional Legal Secretary, City of Greenville, SC
This Athenian Dialogue is a part of the pre-program for The Florida Association of City Clerks 2021 Fall Academy taking place October 17-21, 2021 at The Shores Hotel in Daytona Beach Shores, FL.
This Athenian Dialogue provides an outline of the journey of Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy and the trials and tribulations of life that led him to achieve success while making a difference in the lives of his employees and customers. Growing up during the Great Depression and living in the nation’s first government-subsidized housing project, Truett learned the principles of hard work, fairness, honesty, loyalty, and respect. Those led him to create a fast-food motif in 1967, sell the first boneless breast chicken sandwich and be the first fast-food restaurant to operate in a shopping mall.
Eat Mor Chikin stresses the value of people and principles, gaining loyalty and trust in your employees, and making a difference through actions and commitment, all of which are important lessons for the role of a municipal clerk. The principles shared by Truett Cathy and the lessons expressed by the testimonials in the book provide important examples of how municipal clerks can play a role in improving the relationship of trust and teamwork between local government and its citizens.
This Athenian Dialogue has been pre-approved for three IIMC CMC or MMC education points with the satisfactory, timely completion of a learning assessment.
