Your first step
The Elected Officials Essentials workshop is the first step any city elected official should take in educating themselves to be an effective city leader. The workshop provides an overview of the laws affecting municipal governance as well as tips on how to be an effective city leader.
Local governance is complex and challenging and there are certain requirements, frequent pitfalls, and basic principles that elected officials must know. Elected Officials Essentials offers you the fundamental tools to help make your city or town run smoothly.
Live webinar simulcast benefits include:
- A greater understanding of your statutory role and responsibilities
- The most up-to-date information on your legal obligations and liabilities
- A great start to connecting with other leaders in your region
