The law firm of Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle invites all newly elected officers, as well as administrators, managers, and long-standing elected officials, to a half-day seminar dealing with the ABC’s of local government. The seminar is designed to give newly elected officials a jump start and offers seasoned officers a refresher on the fundamentals of local government law, duties, and procedures.

Topics we will cover include meeting practice and procedures, Illinois “sunshine laws,” contracts, ethics and conflicts of interest rules, personnel, land use, finance and budget, and practical skills to increase effectiveness. Our experienced municipal lawyers also will be available to field your questions. A representative from the McHenry County Council of Governments also will discuss the benefits of intergovernmental cooperation.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of “Congratulations! You’ve Been Elected: Now What Do You Do?” This book, now in its second edition and published by the Illinois Municipal League, should serve as a useful handbook and resource for new and experienced officials.
