Michigan Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials, an affiliate of the Michigan Municipal League, is hosting a 3-hour workshop on the 2020 Census. In 2020, Census Day will be on April 1 and we want our communities to be prepared. In this workshop, you will learn how Michigan has responded historically, the changing demographics, and projections for Michigan. You’ll also learn about Michigan’s Complete Count strategy for increasing Michigan’s response rate, and how to mobilize citizens to “Get Out the Counts” for their communities. The census online process will be explained, and a sample census questionnaire will be reviewed.

Perhaps more so than any other state department, local units of government regularly interact with the Michigan Department of Treasury. From direct revenue support, to technical expertise, to regulatory oversight and reporting, a local government’s partnership with Treasury can be an important component of their fiscal reality. Workshop attendees will hear the latest from Treasury staff on laws and programs that Treasury administers and will be available for individual discussions on Treasury-related questions your community is facing.

Communities are increasingly trying to save on costs, reduce their environmental footprint, and provide residents with a great quality of life. Clean energy and green building strategies can be a big part of achieving those goals! This 3-hour workshop is designed for communities who are just getting started on their clean and green adventure or those who are looking to take it the next level. You will learn about strategies for implementing clean energy programs (including energy efficiency, renewable energy, and clean transportation options like electric vehicles) and green building investments in your municipal facilities and community wide. Workshop speakers will provide insights on how to evaluate options that fit your community needs, where and how to seek funding for clean energy and green building projects, and how to engage your communities in setting goals and priorities for sustainability.
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
