Local Official Training

Many local officials are elected without having any formal training on how to conduct meetings or even how to effectively participate in meetings. While they do some training before taking office, elected officials can benefit from additional training like continuing education that many professions require.

The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension service can be a valuable resource for additional training.  While we can provide very specialized training or resources mentioned below, we can provide training on many topics ranging from using parliamentary procedure effectively and how to streamline meetings.
