Following a competitive process for breakout sessions, MCIT has been selected to present a workshop about the Minnesota Open Meeting Law during the 2017 Association of Minnesota Counties Conference Dec. 5 at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud.

Presented by Jennifer Wolf and Sonya Guggemos, Senior Staff Counsel for Risk Control, MCIT

Elected officials are legally required to conduct business in a public forum. A violation of the Open Meeting Law can affect the credibility of the organization and its leaders, as well as expose them to litigation, fines and penalties. This session covers components of the law that often trip up commissioners and county staff, and provides tips for sidestepping these pitfalls.
