The 1-Paragraph Overview

The Montana Association of Counties, in cooperation with the Local Government Center at MSU, will present our Elected County Officials training December 6th through December 8th in Helena. With an excellent slate of presenters covering public sector governance, ethics, personnel management, as well as strategies for dealing with the public, we encourage ALL county elected officials to attend.

Answers to Your Possible Questions…

For whom is this training intended?

The target audience is ALL county elected officials, both newly-elected and seasoned incumbents. While our trainings are intended to be educational and entertaining, the true value comes from interacting with your colleagues—new and old—from different locations and positions in county government.

I'm listening...Tell me more?

Participants may register at the hotel on Monday, December 6th beginning at 11:00 a.m. or Tuesday, December 7th at 7:30 a.m. Activities will begin Monday afternoon followed by a no-host networking social that evening in the Natatorium at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m. (included in your registration fee).  Tuesday is full day of training, which will continue Wednesday morning.

Okay...So where do I stay?

And MACo is???

MACo is a member services organization, and we represent the wide-ranging interests of our 56 member counties through education and advocacy. Come and meet us at our upcoming training, which provides a unique opportunity to build and strengthen relationships–not just with us, but your peers from around the state.
