For over 40 years the League has conducted the Elected Officials Training Conference aimed at providing a nuts and bolts review of the myriad of important issues municipal officials need to be familiar with from – Sunshine Law to budgets, public official liability and conflicts of interest to public works contracts – these are just a few of the topics to be covered. While the Conference focuses on providing the knowledge base that newly elected municipal leaders need to govern effectively, the changes that continually occur in the municipal arena make this a Conference that all officials should attend.
