Talk It Up Thursdays

Join us each month in 2022 for “Talk It Up Thursday”. These FREE sessions will be from 1:30 – 2:30 pm and cover topics designed specifically for elected officials and city staff. Each month, these learning opportunities will provide educational information, coupled with information on GMA services or programs as well as resources available through state and federal agencies and more.

All sessions will be held via virtual format until conditions allow a safe return to the GMA offices.
