OML conducts seminars for newly elected council members after the municipal election year. These seminars are held regionally and on Saturdays for convenience. The program will be the same for each location.
Faculty will vary from location to location and will consist primarily of those most familiar in the various phases of municipal law. Of course if “veteran” members of council wish to attend, we welcome them.
