Education & Outreach

Education and Outreach

  • March - Executive Forum: The Executive Forum is intended for all Montana Mayors, City Managers, and Chief Executives to come together for an educational experience that is designed specifically for them. The hosting of the Executive Forum is rotated around the state every other year, with legislative years taking place in Helena. While in Helena, participants have the opportunity to interact with the current legislative session. Montana municipalities are encouraged to apply to become a host city. For more information, please contact Janel Favero, Communication Specialist.
  • May - Jim Tillotson Service Program: Montana Municipal attorneys are welcome to attend the Jim Tillotson Service Program. Each year we tailor the agenda to our municipal attorneys' needs, answering questions, providing networking opportunities, and offering CLE credits to all participants.
  • Late Spring/Early Summer - Municipal Summit: The MLCT, MMIA, and LGC work together to provide education and networking opportunities around the state of Montana for Municipal Employees and Elected Officials! Topics may encompass legislative information, safety, human resources, MMIA coverages, good governance, open meetings, citizens right to participate, municipal support, and more!
  • September - Montana League of Cities and Towns Annual Conference: Each year more than 300 municipal officials and employees come together from across Montana to participate in quality learning experiences, and to collaborate and network with peers and industry partners.
