Experts from the New York State Association of Towns will lead two local workshops for newly elected local officials on December 4 in at the Boonville Municipal Building, 13149 NYS Route 12, and December 5 at the Lorraine Town Hall, 20876 County Route 189. Each workshop will run from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and will include a question and answer period.
These free training opportunities are designed to help prepare newly elected officials for their new roles. Topics to be covered will include conflicts of interest, code of ethics and boards of ethics, financial disclosure requirements, typical town offices and their roles, oath of office, and preparing for your first meeting. Both sessions will cover the same information, so choose the location and date most convenient for you.
These workshops are sponsored by the NYS Tug Hill Commission and the region’s five councils of governments: the Cooperative Tug Hill Council, Northern Oneida County Council of Governments, River Area Council of Governments, North Shore Council of Governments and Salmon Rivers Council of Governments.
