You don’t have to be new to elected office to benefit from this AWC workshop that covers the most critical legal and functional responsibilities of local elected officials.

Join us for this workshop where you’ll network with a group of your peers, interact virtually with trainers who’ve worked extensively with cities, and spend time together examining real-world municipal scenarios. The session covers your basic legal obligations and liabilities, and your statutory role and responsibilities.

As an added benefit, this event offers an excellent opportunity to connect and network with other city leaders in your region, while spending less time and travel costs than a traditional training event.

This training is designed to meet the specific requirements for elected officials under the Open Government Training Act.

Registration opens in October

This event is open to any elected or appointed official or staff from member cities.

Registration fee: $45 (lunch provided)
