At the Eagan Community Center

Being a productive employee starts with a well-balanced individual. This year’s conference will allow attendees to look for balance between work and life and plan for the future. Plus, we’ll hear pertinent updates from our partners at the League of Minnesota Cities. ​

This one-day workshop is offered on two separate days so participants may select the day
that is most convenient.

Afternoon Keynote Presentation will feature Tim Eggebraaten 
"Finding Your Beat, The Rhythm of Life"  

Tim Eggebraaten has been a police officer since 1992 and had many different roles during his career with the Detroit Lakes, MN Police
Department – DARE Instructor, Patrol Sergeant, Investigative Sergeant, K-9 Handler, and Chief of Police from 2011 – 2016. Tim retired from
the DLPD in November 2016 after 24 ½ years in law enforcement and 3 years as a correctional officer in Clay County, Minn.


Tim began talking about his own career path and leadership journey in 2016 and found that talking with others about personal and emotional
topics really helped in his own healing process and learned that others can benefit from knowing that they are not alone in their own journey.


Tim will talk (and sing) with us about keeping the harmony in our lives and finding that balance so that we can truly be successful in all
aspects of our lives. He has spent many years performing as a one-man-band and will use the power of music during his presentation to
inspire and move us!
