Education and Events
Elected Officials Academy
The League created the Elected Officials Academy to encourage local leaders to accept the challenge of learning on behalf of the community they serve. It is a four-level recognition program that offers expanded education and leadership opportunities for elected officials—mayors, presidents, council members, commissioners, trustees, and elected administrative officials such as clerks and treasurers. All elected city and village officials or urban township members are invited to participate.
Seminars and Workshops
With a commitment to high-quality, lifelong learning, the League offers training programs throughout the state that include traditional offerings and programs on legislative hot topics. The League offers personalized, on-site training on a variety of topics brought directly to individual communities.
This dynamic, must-attend convergence of national, state, and local municipal experts and community leaders is a meeting place where ideas are exchanged and relationships originate. It features pertinent keynote presenters, informative sessions, workshops, awards, and socially stimulating special events.
Capital Conference and Annual Expo
Capital Conference offers intense keynotes and in-depth presentations on the day’s hottest legislative topics for local officials serious about navigating the political landscape, as well as opportunities to meet and greet their state representatives and senators. This event also includes the Annual Expo, where local elected officials can meet and interact with representatives from companies servicing municipalities—the ideal opportunity for officials to connect with suppliers and consultants.
