TML Training Events and Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

TML is monitoring developments related to the novel coronavirus – including tracking travel restrictions, statewide developments, and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  We want to assure city officials who are planning to attend TML training events that safety and security are our top priorities.

At this time, we’re still planning to proceed with upcoming TML training events including the Emotional Intelligence Workshop, Leadership Academy, Budget Workshops, and Small Town Conference. If the situation changes due to a regional or statewide quarantine, TML will reschedule or cancel the training, notify all registrants, and post information on the event websites.
