The Advanced Weekenders provide an opportunity for elected officials to deepen their knowledge of municipal issues.
With rotating agendas, officials may attend multiple sessions of the Advanced Weekender with different themes - including leadership development, municipal finance & budgeting, and DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion). Participating in Advanced Weekenders is a great way to earn the Elective credits required for Academy Levels Two and Three.
