Elected Officials Academy Advanced Weekender
Friday & Saturday, May 1-2, 2020 

Seasoned elected officials who have attended the EOA “Core Weekender” are ready to jump up to the next level of service with more in-depth knowledge of municipal issues.  Formal presentations about advanced planning and zoning issues, financial modeling, and intergovernmental cooperation are just some components of this invigorating learning experience.  This session offers an excellent opportunity for networking and discussion in a relaxed environment that is often the most effective way for local elected officials to develop and enhance their knowledge and capabilities. 

Upon completion of this program, attendees will be able to:
1. Develop financial policies regarding long-term budgeting
2. Utilize financial models to make sound policy decisions
3. Show a working knowledge of the components of planning and zoning, and demonstrate ways to increase intergovernmental cooperation.
