TGA Course: Managing Your Township Team

Stephen Schultz and Helen “Lizzie” Mills

Monday, April 10, 2017, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Presentation Overview:

Every township has employees. Township board members, deputies, election workers, assessors and firefighters are employees for at least some employment purposes, and so are volunteers. Every township, large and small, needs to be prepared to address human resource issues. Hiring, firing, discipline, compensation, and recruiting and managing volunteers are just a few areas where township officials must be knowledgeable.


MTA can help! We're teaming up with labor law experts Stephen Schultz and Helen "Lizzie" Mills to bring you real-life practical advice and policies. Learn how to craft effective township personnel policies, from the basic components to how to keep it current. Walk away with a sample personnel policy handbook that you can take back to your township to mold into your own personalized version.


Preparing and implementing appropriate policies can improve morale around your township hall, help you retain quality people and, even more importantly, help your township avoid employment (or even volunteer) related risks. Get the tools you need to better manage employees, deputies, volunteers...something for everyone on your township team!
