Open Meetings Training when it's convenient for your Board Don't have time to schedule Open Meetings training? Tired of reading complex statutes but need some quality training on Wisconsin Open Meetings Law? The Local Government Center has the solution. The Local Government Center has produced an informative and enjoyable 10-part video, each approx. 5 minutes in length, available on DVD, addressing Open Meetings Law with actors in a realistic setting, portraying real-world scenarios, followed by an explanation and analysis by an experienced attorney. Check out a preview of this exciting and convenient video. A perfect way to provide needed training to your entire elected body, a copy of this video can be obtained through your county UW-Extension educator.
   
   

UW-Extension's Local Government Center helps educate members of the public in Wisconsin, in particular locally elected or appointed officials and those who aspire to hold office, about local government structures, laws, and procedures in the State of Wisconsin. Whether you are a high school student writing a report, a resident contemplating running for your town board, an official looking up procedures, or a UW-Extension educator developing a presentation, we hope you will find what you need here.

Since its inception in 1997, the Local Government Center has partnered with county UW-Extension offices, the Wisconsin Towns Association, the Wisconsin Counties Association, and the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, in providing education and information to Wisconsin local governments.
