WORKSHOPS

Through the years IACT has continuously offered numerous educational workshops and consultations to provide the latest information to our members. This year’s conference will include three in-depth early bird workshops. Early bird workshops are eligible for IACT Municipal Management Institute (MMI) Credit through the generous sponsorship of HWC Engineering. Further, many of our workshops will quality for CLE and CPE credits.

Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in consultations with representatives from several IACT programs, including Indiana Downtown®, the IACT Medical Trust and IACT’s newest endorsed program, InForm.

Our Vendor Solutions Workshops are back this year, where vendors demonstrate their product, service or specific area of expertise. Presenters will provide case studies, best practices or innovative solutions for cities and towns.
