Elected Officials Training for Everyone!
With elections coming up on Tuesday, we wanted to make sure you’re aware that the Michigan Municipal League is hosting post-election training sessions for both newly elected and seasoned officials in various communities throughout the state.
“You Won! What Now? Newly Elected Officials Training” will be offered at the dates and locations listed below. Each session will run 5:30-9:00 pm and will include a light dinner.
Even if you aren't sure how many new officials you will have, you are able to hold spots in the training session of your choice by simply contacting Jane Bruck at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-669-6312. Reservations will be held until the results of the November election are known. Then, following Election Day, please register your newly elected officials by name.
If you already know which of your elected officials would like to attend, click the above link to register today!
Tim Doyle Scholarships Available for EOA Core Weekender Training
This weekend seminar offers the most critical information in four short courses--Legal Framework, Leadership Roles & Responsibilities, Financial Management, and Planning & Zoning--in a compact format that facilitates achievement of Level One of the Michigan Municipal League's Elected Officials Academy.
The Elected Officials Academy (EOA) is a voluntary continuing education program established to encourage and recognize the efforts of local elected officials to become effective leaders.
Elected Officials Academy Advocacy Program
The Elected Officials Academy (EOA) will adopt an additional advocacy credit for all new participants enrolled on or after January 1, 2011. The credit will be part of each level in the three-level program offered to mayors, presidents, councilmembers, commissioners, and trustees and elected administrative officials, such as clerks and treasurers, as an opportunity to expand their knowledge and expertise.
On January 20, 2011, the EOA will host an Advocacy Workshop at the League Capital Office in Lansing. This workshop will focus on the legislative issues in Lansing and Washington that the League is involved with and the background of those issues, including revenue sharing, transportation funding, PA 312, and more. Elected officials will also discover the League’s role in policymaking, legislative lobbying, and how each League member can get involved. Attendance will count toward completion of level 1 for all new enrollees.
The January program is open to all League members. Registration will be available early next week.
