This training has a great mix of information for both seasoned officials and those new to participating in the General Assembly Session. It is appropriate for newly elected officials and new county staff members as an introductory course, but it is also a great refresher course for seasoned elected officials and staff.

Registration is free and is ONLY OPEN to MACo members (Maryland county elected and appointed officials and county professionals).

This event is a membership benefit for MACo Members – only Maryland county elected officials and county staff members are invited to attend. If space is available, other individuals may register for a fee. Please email Amanda to be added to the waitlist.
