Orientation Conference and Seminar for Elected Local Officials in Rensselaer County" - $10,438

  • Institution Name: Hudson Valley Community College
  • Cooperating Agency: League of Women Voters of Rensselaer County

The need for improved communication among Rensselaer County officials in the new age of regionalization is critical. The primary beneficiaries of the Conference will be the local officials from the twenty-two municipalities in Rensselaer County, with long range or secondary benefits to all County residents who may benefit from more effective and responsive government. The Conference will have the effect of stimulating thought and interest on topical issues before the November elections in 1995 through the survey and promotion efforts of this program, as well as pulling together these issues for newly-elected and veteran officials in January 1996. There should be a multiplier effect in benefits to the broader community as we see action and change in the local, state and federal programs that are being offered.
