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:

  • Fundamentals of Municipal Government presented by Matthew Knickerbocker, First Selectman, Bethel
  • FOIA/Meetings/Ethics presented by Murtha Cullina LLP
  • Budget and Fiscal Management presented by Glenn Klocko, Former Comptroller, Bristol

The subject matter will be 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.
