Now that you’ve been elected to county office, your new leadership role brings with it many new responsibilities.

That’s why the Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC) designed this conference for all newly-elected county officials to learn the basics of county government and what you need to know to get started in your new position. 

The program is primarily geared toward new county commissioners, but we’ve made sure that the content is also pertinent to new county recorders, treasurers, auditors, attorneys or sheriffs.  

Elected county officials come from many different backgrounds and experiences.  This conference is designed to address the wide array of topics important to new county leaders. Whether it is policy development, open meeting law or working with unions, this program will help make you a more effective county leader by introducing you to many topics/issues important to county government.

We also encourage all county administrators/coordinators or auditors to attend the conference with their newly-elected officials so that collaboration and understanding of everyone’s role in making county government work can start right away.

This important, comprehensive conference is one that no newly-elected official should miss!  You will meet other newly-elected officials, learn the basics of getting started in county government and become acquainted with the services and resources that AMC and affiliate organizations offer you.

This is the place to have many of your questions answered about county government and your new role in it.
