The Basic Law of Town, Village District and School District Meeting
Statutes governing the moderator’s duties at town, village district and school district meetings, and elections will be discussed along with issues related to warrant articles, the operating budget, secret ballot voting, polling place management, and other town meeting issues. These topics will be addressed in two concurrent sessions tailored for new and experienced moderators. Ample time will be devoted to questions and answers.

Strategies for Running a Smooth Meeting
Moderators are faced with a challenging task: keeping meetings focused and fair to all participants, while effectively facilitating the flow of debate. This session will highlight suggested strategies for running respectful and efficient meetings, and polling places.

Sample Scenarios
A series of sample scenarios will help attendees prepare for a wide range of meeting challenges.
