Attracting, hiring and maintaining quality public safety officials is an issue of great importance to cities.

This class will discuss:

The course will be a coordinated effort taught by Jason Sharp, Parsons Chief of Police; Tammy Seely, City Clerk/Human Resource Officer, City of McPherson; and Amanda Stanley, General Counsel, League of Kansas Municipalities.
The MTI will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cost to attend this course is $75 for members, $100 for nonmembers. Lunch and materials provided.
