 2016 MML Elected Officials Training Conference 

Holiday Inn Executive Center
Columbia, MO
June 9-10, 2016

  Tentative Agenda

This Conference provides a nuts and bolts review of the myriad of important issues municipal officials need to be familiar with from Sunshine Law to ethics, from economic development to social media those are just a few of the topics to be covered. While the Conference focuses on providing the knowledge base that newly elected municipal leaders need to govern effectively, the changes that continually occur in the municipal arena make this a Conference that all officials should attend. Attendance at this conference will provide credit towards the Municipal Governance Institute's Certified Municipal Official program. (Click here for more information on becoming a Certified Municipal Official) .
