2012 Greater Minnesota Regional Meetings
Representatives from the League and colleagues from the surrounding areas of the state joined together to learn about new ideas and helpful resources for Minnesota cities. From fraud prevention in your city to integrating new councilmembers to unique investment options for cities—discussions at these meetings covered today’s most important issues. Below are presentations and handouts from these fall 2012 meetings.
Educating and Integrating New Councilmembers
With a big election year ahead, most Minnesota cities will see a few—or even a lot—of new faces on their councils. League staff and city colleagues shared tips on successful ways to get new members in the know and on the team.
Keeping Your City’s Investments Safe
Is your local bank safe? Can you find higher yields from investment income? How can cities invest safely and still see growth? Keeping your community’s money protected, while doing what you can to earn critical investment income, doesn’t have to be so complicated. Financial experts and 4M Fund administrators from PMA Financial Network, Inc. and RBC Global Asset Management discussed solutions designed specifically for Minnesota cities.
Preventing Employee Dishonesty: Theft, Embezzlement, and Fraud
Employee theft, embezzlement, and fraud aren’t just big-city problems. This session looked beyond the headlines with real case studies to understand how fraud can happen in your city—and how to prevent it.
The outcomes of the 2012 legislative session included both successes and challenges. What were some positives for cities from the session? What unfavorable legislation was thwarted from passing, and will it be back next year? How can you get involved on issues important to your city and provide feedback on the League’s 2013 legislative platform? League intergovernmental relations staff were on-hand with these answers and more.
