Last month, the G.A.B. launched its second year of election administration education and training using webinar programming.  The second webinar in our “Building on the Basics” series is: 

Webinar for County and Municipal Clerks
Closing Out 2013 – What Clerks Need to Know
Wednesday, October 16, 2013, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Web link: https://www1.gotowebinar.com/register/583325305

The Closing Out 2013 – What Clerks Need to Know Webinar will cover specific topics related to the duties and responsibilities of election officials that merit additional clarification, based on feedback we have received from county and municipal clerks: 

  • Calendar of Election and Campaign Events
  • Appointing Election Officials for 2014-2015
  • Training Requirements
  • Publishing Notices
  • Ballot Access
  • Notification of Noncandidacy
  • Cost of Elections
  • Record Retention
  • Campaign Finance Information

Reference materials for the webinar have been posted on our website as an attachment.  The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the G.A.B. website for clerks to use for their own education:  http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.   The training counts toward clerk recertification whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
