Councilman Rodriguez "Graduates" From The Institute for Elected Municipal Officals
Miami Lakes, FL - Councilman Nelson Rodriguez completed the Florida League of Cities and the John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government Institute for Elected Municipal Officials (IEMO) Program. This educational program is specially designed for newly elected officials and those with less than one term in office.
"Attending IEMO was a great experience with in depth training on Budgeting, Ethics and Florida Governmental history," said Councilman Rodriguez. "Together with 20 other elected officials, I was able to compare the similarities and challenges of running a municipal government."
The primary objective of the IEMO is to provide elected municipal officials with an intensive academic program that will assist them in effectively meeting the requirements of their elected role. The program offers a comprehensive overview of Florida municipal government, presented by a faculty of top professionals in the field.
