Newly Elected Officials Training

2019-20 Newly Elected Officials Training

City and town elected officials truly serve on the front lines of our American democracy. It can be a challenging responsibility, particularly for those recently elected. Yet with the proper preparation and training, municipal officials can assume their responsibilities of office smoothly and efficiently. Every four years, Aim conducts a training program for incoming city and town officials to support them during their first weeks in office.
Please check back regularly for updates and registration information for these exciting events!
