NHMA On-Demand Training

Municipal Authority to Act and Preemption

The Selectmen’s Role with other Elected and Appointed Officials

Fair Labor Standards Act and Family Medical Leave Act

Trusts and Trustees (cemetery and trustees of trust funds)

Municipal Employment Law

Discrimination in the Workplace

Effective Communication and Action with Library Trustees/Library Trustee Law

What Do Selectmen Do?

Road Law

Planning Board and/or ZBA basics (roles and procedures)

The Tax Deeding Process

Other topics as may be arranged with staff

Each presentation is approximately 2 hours in length and costs $475.00. Member municipalities paying annual dues in excess of $15,000 are entitled to one free On-Demand presentation per calendar year. We encourage the requesting municipality to invite officials and employees from surrounding NHMA-member municipalities to attend and share the cost.
