IML Offers Virtual Newly Elected Officials Training

For those newly elected officials who missed last week's Newly Elected Officials Training hosted by the Lake County Bar Association last week, the Illinois Municipal League has released a virtual training that you can access on the IML's website. The topics include the Basics of Municipal Government, Open Meetings Act, Ethics and Conflicts of Interest, and a Legislative Update.

It looks like you have to enter your name, contact information, and municipality to access each training session, so the training may be limited to municipal members of the IML.

Also, this training offers some good news for municipal officials who haven't been able to access the Attorney General's electronic OMA training because of the website hack - according to the IML's website, a municipal official who completes the Open Meetings Act training can obtain a certificate of completion to satisfy the statutorily required OMA training for newly elected municipal officials. 

You can find out more about the NEO training on the IML website page here.
