This is one of eight Core Courses required to complete the Academy certificate program offered through the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy and sponsored by the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT). All conference registrants are invited to attend, but Academy Fellows will need to turn in an evaluation form to receive credit.
Conducting Effective Meetings
Conducting public business requires managing the issues that come before a public body. Building an agenda, promoting useful discussion, and providing a structure for decision-making are key goals for an effective meeting and for effective public officials. The instructor also covers the proper use of organized rules of order – known as parliamentary procedure – which allow all voices to be heard but with debate that remains focused and civil.
