Victoria Mayor Rawley McCoy attended the Newly Elected City Officials’ Orientation in Round Rock in mid-July, according to a news release from the city.
Elected officials from around the state attended the event, which provided an opportunity for newly elected city officials to voluntarily enhance their knowledge of city government and sharpen their leadership skills, according to the news release.
The event is sponsored by the Texas Municipal League and the Texas Association of Mayors, Council members and Commissioners.
Attendees were offered sessions on topics such as leadership, open government, parliamentary procedure, financial responsibilities, ethics, economic development and media relations. The orientation also provided opportunities to visit with elected officials from around Texas to learn how other cities are handling similar challenges.
Newly elected Councilman Mark Loffgren will attend the training in August.
