As summer vacations end, now is the time to strengthen your skills in preparation for the busy season in municipalities, and what better way to do so than by signing up for an Elected Officials Education Program (EOEP) course.

The EOEP is offering five in-person courses between now and the end of 2015, many of which have been freshly updated with new content to capture the latest trends, issues, and challenges in municipal government. In addition to being fresh, the EOEP is offering courses in both Calgary and Edmonton. See below for information on all five courses, including two opportunities to attend the brand new Community Development through Citizen Engagement course and works in tandem with the AAMDC and AUMA’s brand new Citizen Engagement Toolkit, expected to be released shortly.
