Just Got Elected? Michigan Municipal League Trains Newly Elected Officials

As local government officials and community leaders, it is imperative to understand your new roles and responsibilities and the laws and duties you are obligated to follow. The challenges of diminished revenue and increased costs, coupled with citizen demands and the need to adapt and change, make it vital that elected leaders employ model governance practices.

To ensure you get the governance training you need, sign up now for the Michigan Municipal League’s Elected Officials Academy (EOA) workshops for newly elected and seasoned officials. The EOA provides elected officials an opportunity to learn best practices and strategies of successful councils.

The newly elected officials’ workshop consists of core topics that first-timers should be aware of. Topics include:

  • An introduction to the League,

  • Overview of basic local government,

  • Roles and responsibilities,

  • Open Meetings Act,

  • Freedom of Information Act, and

  • Lobbying 101.

In addition, officials will learn about an exciting new initiative that the League is implementing—the Center for 21st Century Communities (21c3)—with programs and resources designed to assist communities in creating unique and sustainable places. And to top it off, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and benefit from the experience and insight of a panel of seasoned elected officials.

These workshops will begin immediately after November’s election. Registration is open at

This workshop is being offered at the low cost of $25 per person. Each session will start with a light dinner at 5:30 pm, and will run from 6:00-9:00 pm. The dates and locations are as follows:
