Elected Officials Academy Core Weekender

Elected Officials Academy Core Weekender
Friday & Saturday, May 3-4, 2019

Online registration is closed. Please register onsite. 

All elected municipal officials must have a basic foundation of knowledge upon which to build their effectiveness as community leaders.  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.  Learn more about the EOA at eoa.mml.org.  Upon completion of this program attendees will be able to differentiate between the role of the councilmember and the role of the mayor/president, discuss the Uniform Budgeting and Accounting Act, identify where taxes and revenue sharing come from, use zoning checks and balances, and make effective zoning decisions.
