Lunch and Learn.jpg


2016 marks that first year our association will offer webinars. The objective is to allow officials and interested parties an opportunity to eat lunch in at their desk while participating in an hour long program to benefit their responsibilities as township officials or staff in township government. More specifically, many of our members are unable to attend our district events and/or the annual educational conference for numerous reasons. These scheduled webinars are designed to reach them with an educational opportunity. The cost to participate is very low and all you need is a phone and an internet connection. 

Webinars will be held on the following dates in 2016. All 60 minute sessions begin at 12 pm.
