CAPCOG taps legal experts for local elected officials training

Thursday, May 18, 2017

CAPCOG will host municipal legal experts for a four-and-a-half-hour workshop on being a local representative and best practices elected officials should follow while conducting city and township business. The workshop will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 8 at CAPCOG, 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310, Suite 165. It will be geared towards newly elected officials, but may also serve as a refresher that can provide a new perspective for tenured city council members and aldermen.

Topics covered during the workshop include:

  • Types of governments and how they work
  • Open meetings and public information basics
  • Agendas, legislative finds, ordinances, and resolutions
  • Ethical issues and traps for the unwary

The Texas Attorney General’s Office approved this workshop’s Texas Open Meetings Act and Public Information Act presentations, so they meet the state’s requirements for training on the acts. Workshop attendees may also qualify for credit hours towards their Texas Municipal League Institute (TMLI) education.

> Register for the training workshop.

Elected officials representing CAPCOG members can attend the workshop at no cost.
