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. Workshops and boot camp are specially designed for new mayors, clerks-treasurers, and council members. Learn more about the event and how it can help improve your skill set.
