Newly Elected Municipal Officials Institute
The Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) and the Vinson Institute coordinate the training required by Georgia law for mayors and city council members elected or reelected after July 1, 1990. This one-and-a-half-day program is offered at the University of Georgia and other locations throughout the state. It provides an orientation to city government and prepares new municipal officials to face the variety of situations they meet upon taking office. Reference material is given to support city officials in making decisions and carrying out their responsibilities.
