On May 20, 2015, the McHenry County Council of Governments in association with Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle will be hosting a “Seminar for Local Government Officials.” The seminar will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn located at 800 South Illinois Route 31, Crystal Lake, IL 60014.

Join other newly elected officials, as well as administrators, managers, and long-standing elected officials at a seminar dealing with the ABCs of local government. Get a jump start on:

  • The fundamentals of local government and procedures
  • Meeting procedures
  • Illinois Sunshine laws
  • Contracts and bidding
  • Ethics and conflicts of interest
  • Finance and budget
  • Economic development
  • Land use
  • And more

This program is also ideal for existing elected and appointed officials looking for a refresher course or a deeper understanding of the complex regulatory structure in which they operate.

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

Please RSVP by May 14, 2015, to Marty Davis at (815) 459-2050 or [email protected].
