Fall 2023 LGW

The Fall Local Government Workshop was held on
at the Conference Center at  Wayne/Finger Lakes BOCES in Newark, NY.

The Local Government Workshops is one of G/FLRPC's signature initiatives, providing a forum for training and information sharing since 1996 for our 188 municipalities. Since that time, thousands of local government officials, board members, staff, and interested citizens have attended the workshops, held twice a year.  

This year's event will host a wide variety of training opportunities. This workshop will provide training credit to planning and zoning board members for the duration of their attendance at the workshop. We are also working on getting AICP credit for certified planners attending as well. Those sessions will be noted on the schedule when it is released.
