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.

This year, MACo’s Winter Conference offers a course on conducting effective meetings, specifically tailored for county elected officials. The session will be moderated by The Honorable Mel Franklin, Council Chair, Prince George’s County. Jack A. Gullo, Jr., Attorney, Taneytown, Rising Sun & Poolesville will present the tips and guidance on effective meetings.

This session counts for credit in the University of Maryland’s Academy for Excellence in Local Governance.

Date/Time: Wednesday, December 9, 2015 from 3 to 5pm
