NEOC Graduation Dinner & Awards Ceremony

FullRoomCropMany thanks to the many participants, sponsors and guest that made the 2015-2016 Graduation Dinner a success on March 24, 2016  Local Government Academy, municipal and local government leaders  and others joined in recognizing the accomplishments of the participants in the 2015-16 Newly Elected Officials Course.

Starting in November 21, 2015, nearly 60 individuals from numerous southwestern PA counties  completed more than 40 hours of intensive instruction in a number of areas relevant to governing at the local level, from  the nuts and bolts of budgeting, to understanding their roles and responsibilities in emergency management. By participating in the most comprehensive training course of its kind in Pennsylvania, the graduates of LGA’s Newly Elected Officials Course developed a base of knowledge that will help their terms of office be more effective than they would have been if they had engaged only in “on-the-job” training.
