2022 Newly Elected Day - Virtual Event Image
Due to the increased COVID-19 positivity rate and concerns for attendees' health and safety, this event will now be held virtually via Zoom. Individuals who previously registered for this event, when it was scheduled to be in-person, will automatically be registered for this virtual event. Thank you for your patience and understanding!


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:

  • Fundamentals of Municipal Government
    • Presented by Matthew Knickerbocker (First Selectman, Town of Bethel)
  • FOIA/Meetings/Ethics
    • Presented by Kari Olson (Partner, Murtha Cullina) & Joseph Szerejko (Associate, Murtha Cullina)
  • Municipal Budgeting 101
    • Presented by Mike Walsh (Mayor, Town of East Hartford)

The subject matter is covered in three rotating sessions so that all attendees — new municipal CEOs, new Council members, and new Board of Finance members — receive tailored comprehensive training in each of these critical areas of municipal government.

  • Learn how CCM can help you and your municipality
  • Receive credits toward becoming a Certified Connecticut Municipal Official (CCMO), CCM’s certification program for municipal officials and employees

  • Mayors/First Selectmen
