Mayor Roy West Recently Completed Newly Elected City Officials Training
Mayor Roy West recently attended the Newly Elected City Officials' Orientation in Round Rock in July, which was sponsored by the Texas Municipal League and the Texas Association of Mayors, Councilmembers, and Commissioners, an affiliate of the Texas Municipal League. Elected officials from all over the state attended the conference, which provides an opportunity for newly elected city officials to voluntarily enhance their knowledge of city government and sharpen their leadership skills. The orientation also allows an opportunity to visit with elected officials from across Texas to hear how other cities are coping with similar challenges and offer ideas he can bring back to Beaumont.
During this event, attendees participate in sessions on topics such as leadership, open government, parliamentary procedure, ethics, economic development, revenue sources, and land use. Mayor West completed also trainings in the Public Information Act and the Open Meetings Act.
The Texas Municipal League is a voluntary association of 1,175 Texas cities in which the City of Beaumont participates.
