Feedback from our 2015 Legislative Update seminar:

"The Legislative Update training is one of the most valuable seminars offered by TMCA. I understand this information is out there for us to retrieve, but having it narrowed down to municipalities and delivered by knowledgeable people in that field is awesome..."

"The presenters at this seminar were top notch. Kudos to Alan and anyone assisting with selection."

"I think that hearing the problems that other cities are going through and that everyone is facing the same problem [is valuable]. It gives us a chance to talk to each other and collaborate on issues."

"[It's valuable to be] able to learn laws that have changed and what to expect without having to continually follow the legislature while in session. Of course, the usual learning from peers on how they handle some of the changes in laws helps. Making new contacts also is a plus!"

"As always TMCCP puts on a great seminar and the networking is awesome!"
