That’s a Wrap! 2015-2016 IACT Newly Elected Officials Training Came to a Close with Boot Camp in Indianapolis
Following five regional training sessions and a fantastic New Mayors School in December, IACT hosted Clerk-Treasurers School and Boot Camp for Newly Elected Officials in Indianapolis January 19-21.
Collective attendance at these events exceeded 1,000 new and veteran mayors, clerk-treasurers, council members, appointed officials and professionals in municipal government. Over the course of eight events, participants were instructed on topics such as finance, budgeting, public safety, public works, open door and open records laws, communications and much more.
Some highlights of the series included several discussions on quality of life initiatives, remarks from both Gubernatorial candidates, and a fantastic keynote address on walkability by Jeff Speck. Other features included an interactive panel of statewide elected officials and a first-class trade show introducing Indiana’s municipal leaders to the vendor partners they will need in the days, months and years ahead.
All attendees of Boot Camp received an IACT Elected Municipal Officials Handbook. One attendee per city or town was also offered the opportunity to return home with the community’s extra courtesy copy of the book to be shared by all. If no one from your community picked up your book, one will be mailed to you within the next two weeks. Extra copies of the book can be ordered by using a publication order form found here.
Roster of Indiana City and Town Officials
In an effort to maintain accurate, timely communication with our members, the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns repopulates our database every four years, immediately following each municipal election. In addition to our database, the information will help us publish the 2016 IACT Roster of Indiana City and Town Officials. The roster is an IACT tradition that spans more than 50 years and has become a “go to” reference for municipal leaders, staff, IACT associate members and state officials. The 2016 is evolving in an exciting way – the upcoming roster will be available via mobile app early next year.
Please take a minute to review the form and fill it in with the most current information. Please mail, fax or email the form to IACT.
