BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The City of Palm Bay’s Deputy Mayor Kenny Johnson, Councilman Donny Felix and Councilman Randy Foster recently graduated from the Institute for Elected Municipal Officials II.
The course is from the Florida League of Cities Institute for Elected Municipal Officials, a premier educational program designed specifically for Florida’s elected officials.
The IEMO II course is the second level of training offered through the League’s IEMO program.
Participation in this course is reserved for those municipal officials who have successfully graduated from the first level IEMO course or have completed one or more terms in office.
An intensive two-day program, the IEMO II course features classes and workshops focused on the numerous aspects of municipal government.
Session topics include advanced financial tools, personnel and labor relations, decision-making models, media relations, and more.
“Local elected officials wear many hats and have an extensive list of responsibilities, which many people don’t fully realize,” said Florida League of Cities President Phillip Walker.
“The League’s IEMO II course helps participants gain the knowledge and tools necessary to fulfill their duties and to serve their communities to the best of their abilities. I commend these officials for voluntarily putting in the extra time and effort required of this course, and I congratulate them for successfully completing it!”
Created 30 years ago to educate newly elected officials on the intricacies of municipal government in a cost-effective manner, the IEMO program grew out of a partnership between the Florida League of Cities and the John Scott Daily Florida Institute of Government.
Today, the program offers multiple levels of training, with each designed specifically for municipal officials of all levels. It is the most popular training that the Florida League of Cities offers.
