Newly Elected Officials Workshop

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 is geared towards newly elected officials, but it also can serve as a refresher and provide a new perspective for tenured city council members and aldermen.

Topics to be 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.

June 8, 2017, 9:30am – 2:00pm

Cost: $25.00
Hours: 4
