Elected Officials Webinar Series, January 2011
The League is excited to offer a three-part elected officials webinar series! The webinars consist of the core topics that will help educate first-time elected officials, as well as seasoned officials, on the basic functions they will need to know in their roles as public leaders.
Advocacy Workshop for Elected Officials
On January 20, 2011, the Elected Officials Academy (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.

Free Webinar on Social Media!
When it comes to social media, communities have two choices: Learn how to use this powerful communications tool - or get "abused" by it. It’s time to take your community’s message into your own hands and social media is the way to do it.
A one-hour webinar session by the Michigan Municipal League will give you the tools you need to create a successful online media campaign. We’ll talk about Facebook, Twitter and up-and-coming tools such as Foursquare and Gowalla., You’ll also learn how to get the most out of social media within the many time and financial constraints facing municipalities.
