Attend this popular event at any one of our convenient 12 locations across the state where you’ll network and examine real-world municipal scenarios with the help of an on-site city attorney. Learn your basic legal obligations and liabilities, understand your statutory roles and responsibilities, explore what makes your work at city hall meaningful, and discover how your leadership shapes your community.

As one of AWC’s flagship events, this workshop offers the 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. You don’t have to be new to elected office to benefit from this workshop covering the most critical legal and functional responsibilities of local elected office, as this event offers relevant information for new and seasoned elected officials alike.

This training will cover key points of the Open Government Trainings 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)
