Every year, MACo offers a Half-Day Annapolis Immersion training program to help county advocates navigate the Maryland General Assembly Session.
MACo’s 2017 Half-Day Annapolis Immersion Training will be held on Wednesday, November 8, at the MACo office (169 Conduit Street, Annapolis, MD). Scheduled for 10:00 am – 2:45 pm, this in-depth workshop is FREE for MACo Members (county elected and appointed officials and county professionals).
The training features segments on the following topics:
- Overview of the General Assembly Session and the Legislative Process
- What is MACo and its Role in the Legislative Process?
- The Fiscal Note Process
- The Bond Bill and Budget Hearing Process
- Tips on Testifying
- Walking Tour of the State Capitol, Senate, and House Buildings
These topics will be covered by MACo staff, experts from the Department of Legislative Services, and appropriate staff members from House or Senate Committees.
This training has a great mix of information for both seasoned officials and those new to participating in the General Assembly Session. It is appropriate for newly elected officials and new county staff members as an introductory course, but it is also a great refresher course for seasoned elected officials and staff.
Registration is free and is ONLY OPEN for MACo members (Maryland county elected and appointed officials and county professionals).
Space is limited and the deadline is November 1, so please register today!
This event is a membership benefit for MACo Members – only Maryland county elected officials and county staff members are invited to attend. If space is available, other individuals may register for a fee. Please contact Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waitlist.
