Newly Elected Officials - Don't Forget OMA Training!

Many newly elected and appointed members of public bodies will be taking office this month, following the April election.  If you are a member of a public body subject to the Open Meetings Act and have not yet completed the training program, you will need to complete the training program within 90 days of taking office.     
As we reported last year, you can access the OMA training program by clicking the "Electronic Training" link on the Attorney General's website. Then, you will need to register as an OMA Public Body Member, requiring you to create an account using the online registration form. This account will allow you to review your training records and print out your training certificate once you successfully complete the program.  After you create your account, you will be able to access the training program.  Don't forget to print out your completion certificate and turn it into the public body after you complete the training! 
Congratulations on your election/appointment to public office and good luck!
