The Summer Short Courses has been renamed: Summer Specialized Training.  The Summer Training agenda and time frame is being restructured into an afternoon of breakouts focusing on specific duties.

The Minnesota Association of Townships Summer Specialized Training Program for Township Supervisors, Clerks and Treasurers as well as other local public officials, will be held in eight locations around the state this June. See the date and location nearest you.

This Summer Specialized Training Program is designed to offer a “hands on” or relaxed learning environment for all attendees.  The Trainings are open to Public Officials only.

The program content encourages the attendance of all township officers ~ both newly-elected and veteran.  In addition to many  sessions offered for clerks and treasurers, the program specifically designed several sessions for supervisors.  As the “decision-makers” for all township administrative functions, training is vitally important.

The purpose of the Summer Specialized Training Program is to provide a one-day educational program for all township officers and public officials.  City officials will find these training topics applicable to their duties and responsibilities.

Recently enacted legislation and other pertinent Minnesota statute requirements for the performance of duties and responsibilities of local elected officials will be addressed within various topics.

Early-Bird rate is $50/person.
