Join us on Oct. 1 for our featured webinar: What the Board Needs to Know About Elections

Townships may vary dramatically in size and location, but all have elections in common. Every township runs elections. With all the controversy, mistrust and sweeping requirements still fresh in our minds, we look ahead to November’s general election with a primer on elections geared for your entire township board. From board responsibilities to resources, we’ll help you get a handle on the impact elections have on your township. Register online now!

Save the date for our Nov. 5 webinar: What the Board Needs to Know about Tax Collection

Tax collection is a mandatory function of every township. While collecting property taxes is the treasurer’s duty, the entire board makes decisions about how the revenue will be used. Every board member should understand the tax collection (and administration) process. Whether you are a seasoned official or still fairly new to the game, you can’t afford to miss this overview of tax collection basics designed with the whole board in mind.  Click here for online registration.
