Based on your input and recent municipal developments, the 2019 tentative Academy training session topic schedule has been established as follows:
We want to thank all of our members for their continued support and input, keeping the Academy a success! Since 2012, more than 600 public officials and employees have now received low cost educational training through the Academy!
We continue to urge municipalities to participate in the Academy with a tuition membership. With the tuition membership, all city officials and employees can reap the benefits of all training sessions for the 2019 year. Also, all city officials and employees will have access to past training sessions of the Academy. The 2019 tuition rates* are as follows:
Cities with 25 or less employees – $50 single payment for the year (for all officials and employees/all year)
Cities between 26 and 100 employees – $100 single payment for the year (for all officials and employees/all year)
Cities with more than 100 employees – $200 single payment for the year (for all officials and employees/all year)
*Any city financially unable to allocate this amount may apply for and may qualify for a need-based tuition waiver. Contact Lyndee for more details.
The Academy will continue to allow one-time attendance to training sessions at the rate of $20 per session per person. However, we urge your municipality to consider the tuition option, rather than register for each individual session, to assist the Academy in reducing administrative costs. The volunteer services of the Municipal League of Metro St. Louis, Cunningham, Vogel & Rost, P.C., and all of the speakers and administrative support are provided because they, like you, are committed to the important non-profit role of public service and want it to be as professional, knowledgeable, and effective as possible. Please take this opportunity to support the Academy by moving your community to an annual tuition membership to continue its reach, success, and value. Please contact Steve Ables at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for the 2019 tuition rate. Please make all tuition payments by February 8, 2019. If you have any other questions or concerns, please direct them to Lyndee Rodamaker at email@example.com.
We hope you all have a wonderful New Year, and we look forward to seeing you in 2019!
