The program offers a comprehensive overview of Iowa municipal government and is presented by the Iowa League of Cities, Institute of Public Affairs and Iowa State University Extension.

Topics covered during the series include:

  •     city finance and budgeting
  •     meeting procedures
  •     municipal law
  •     economic development
  •     ethics and fraud prevention
  •     nuisance abatement

Attending the Municipal Leadership Academy is one of the first steps a new city official should take toward success in public office. From open meetings to city finances, these sessions are designed to quickly bring new officials up to speed on municipal issues. Current elected or appointed city officials will also find incredible value in the up-to-date information on municipal operations and networking opportunities the sessions offer.
