Space Still Available At Annual Town Officers' Training

Burlington--There's still time to sign up for the Town Officers' Educational Conferences planned for three locations in Vermont in April.

These meetings, offered by University of Vermont Extension and participating agencies, are designed to help town managers, select board members, librarians, town clerks and other town officials do their jobs more effectively. Sites include the Hilton Burlington Hotel, Burlington (April 3); Lake Morey Inn, Fairlee (April 17); and the Killington Grand Resort Hotel and Conference Center, Killington (April 24).

Registration is $70, with a $10 discount if registering online, and covers lunch, morning and afternoon refreshments and a choice of five concurrent workshop sessions.  Registration information can be found at Or call (802) 773-3349.

On-site registration begins at 8 a.m. with the program ending at 3:30 p.m. Concurrent workshop sessions focus on a broad range of topics including new and updated tax laws, disaster relief, grand lists and current use, new technologies, managing public access to documents, implementation of actions in town plans, civic engagement and other matters of interest to town officials.

In addition, participants will learn about effective communication, both within town offices and between town governments and residents, at the keynote session, which also covers ways to use technology to manage information more effectively.
