County Officials Workshops

County Officials Workshops

Following the spring elections in even numbered years, UW-Extension’s Local Government Center and the Wisconsin Counties Association co-sponsor day-long workshops to orient both new and continuing county officials, at several locations around the state. With turnover on county boards averaging about 25% each election cycle, board members need opportunities to learn more about their roles and responsibilities.

Due to social distancing requirements, COWs 2020 will be conducted utilizing a webinar format in 2020. For those unable to attend the webinars live, recordings will be posted on the Wisconsin Counties Association and Local Government Center websites. The webinars are being offered free of charge.
