Municipal Bootcamp 2021: Session Four – What Not to Say and What Really Not to Do
New for 2021 Hancock Estabrook and the MRB Group are rolling out a new FREE annual training program to assist local governments, town officials, and planning and zoning boards.
The program will include 10 hours of remote training designed to provide a comprehensive education that encompasses all aspects of municipal governance. Each program in the series will be provided remotely on the fourth Thursday of each month with subject matter experts from the MRB Group and knowledgeable attorneys from Hancock Estabrook, LLP. Topics will be lively, useful and – potentially as important – qualify for the education requirements for members of Planning Boards and Zoning Boards of Appeals.

SESSION 4: WHAT NOT TO SAY, AND WHAT REALLY NOT TO DO
Professionalism and Preventing Sexual Harassment in Local Government
In recent years, New York State has placed heightened emphasis on preventing sexual harassment in the workplace, and on ensuring a safe, productive work environment for all. Protections extend far beyond traditional definitions, and the liabilities can be steeped. New regulations even apply to volunteer board members, vendors, and applicants! Check out this session both to stay in the know, and to meet the annual Sexual Harassment Prevention training requirement.
