2019 OML Annual Conference And Expo News
2019 OML Conference Offers Educational Workshops
for all Municipal Staff
The 2019 OML annual conference is just around the corner and expectations are high for a very informative and fun experience.

One of the main reasons our members attend the annual conference is because of the great educational workshops that are offered each year. This year will be no exception as we have planned 43 outstanding and relevant workshop topics and presentations.

For example, the workshop tracks include the latest information on hot legislative issues, such as updates on alcohol and medical marijuana, up-to-date information on HR and finance best practices, effective communication strategies for your communities, information on current economic development and emergency management trends, and so much more. As you can see, there are workshops planned for all municipal staff.
