The Massachusetts Select Board Association and the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association will co-host a free webinar to discuss codes of conduct for town boards and committees, as well as the rise in harassment claims being seen in town halls.

The training will be led by attorney Regina Ryan of Discrimination and Harassment Solutions LLC. With more than 25 years of employment law experience, Ryan has completed multiple MCAD-certified training courses for conducting investigations and trainings related to discrimination and/or harassment in the workplace.

The training will include a review of a code of conduct template that Ryan has developed for town boards and commissions, with a particular emphasis on maintaining appropriate relationships between elected officials and town employees. Ryan will also discuss discrimination and harassment and provide prevention information.

Sandwich Town Manager Bud Dunham will moderate the session.

Advance registration is required (at least one hour prior to the start). The session will use Zoom’s Chat and Q&A functions, which require use of the Zoom desktop or smartphone app.

This webinar is co-sponsored by MIIA, but attendance is not limited to MIIA member communities. All MSA members are welcome. The webinar will be eligible for MIIA Rewards credit.
