Certified Municipal Officials Program

In 2001, the League developed the CMO program in an effort to address a nationwide movement dedicated to developing efficient and effective community leaders by providing meaningful information on topics that will expand the elected official's knowledge and capabilities.
There are three levels of certification officials can obtain through the CMO program:   
Basic, Advanced and Professional Development.

The class, Ad Valorem Taxation & the Municipal Budgeting Process, will be held at night and will include dinner, allowing an alternative time frame to receive CMO credits for those who have day-time duties that prohibit them from attending some of our other CMO opportunities that are usually held primarily during the day.
