Program Overview back to top

These workshops are provided as a free service to all newly elected officials in Connecticut.

The workshop sessions include presentations from recognized experts with lengthy experience covering three core local government subject areas:

  • FOIA/Meetings/Ethics presented by Murtha Cullina LLP
