IEMO I June 2024

The Florida League of Cities is proud to bring you the Institute for Elected Municipal Officials I (IEMO I).  This educational program is specially designed for newly elected officials and those with less than one term in office.

The event will take place June 7-8, 2024 at the Embassy Suites Palm Beach Gardens, located at 4350 PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens.

Who should attend IEMO?
Created in 1992, the Institute for Elected Municipal Officials was designed to help elected officials in Florida's municipalities to effectively meet the requirements of their elected role. Its intensive academic program offers a comprehensive overview of Florida municipal government, presented by a faculty of top professionals in the field. IEMO is a two-day program structured in a Friday through Saturday format and is offered three times per year at different locations throughout the state.


The curriculum is divided into six instructional modules, taught in the following sequence:

  • The Municipal Landscape in Florida
  • Public Official's Liability
  • Effective Council Techniques
  • Budgeting and Accounting
  • Taxes and Other Sources of Revenue
  • Parliamentary Procedures: Your City's Attorney's Roles and Responsibilities

These topics were selected to provide a comprehensive overview of the critical issues that are addressed by municipal government officials. It is suggested that participants review their municipal charter, policies and budget to prepare for the classes, and may want to bring these materials along. Speakers will provide hand-outs and resource material.

A certificate of attendance is provided upon successful completion of the program.
*All classes must be attended*
