Each year, elected and appointed government officials and administrators from across the state improve their knowledge and skills through professional development opportunities offered by University of Illinois Extension. Participants benefit from the advanced instruction and broad expertise that instructors bring to all our programming. In 2015, more than 480 local government officials learned through webinars, workshops, and program recordings.
With the 2016 legislative calendar coming to a close, conversations are occurring regarding state and federal legislative agendas that will affect local governments. Tune into the University of Illinois Extension webinar January 19, from noon to 1 p.m., for an update on State and Federal legislation affecting local government.
