Doing Due Process Right – Practical Tips for Municipal Leaders (Event Recap)

Presented by Sam Light, CIRSA General Counsel

If you were unable to attend “Doing Due Process Right – Practical Tips for Municipal Leaders,” don’t worry! The training presentation can now be located on the CIRSASafety YouTube channel.

Municipal leaders have this unique, cherished power in local government to make certain decisions at the local level that affect peoples’ land use, licensing, and other “property rights.” Given the significant risks in this area, CIRSA provides Quasi-Judicial training to focus on “suggestions for success” and best practices for quasi-judicial decision-makers, which in turn will reduce risk for your City or Town and you individually.

CIRSA 2021 Regional Training Events

“Doing Due Process Right – Practical Tips for Municipal Leaders”

We are excited to announce three upcoming regional training events designed for elected and appointed municipal officials and staff. CIRSA General Counsel Sam Light will be presenting on the applicable topic, “Doing Due Process Right—Practical Tips for Municipal Leaders.”

In his presentation, Sam will be covering the critical importance of Due Process in municipal decision-making, explain how concepts of fundamental fairness have a direct impact on whether your entity succeeds (or fails) in meeting its obligations under the due process clause, and offer practical tips for successful (and defensible) due process hearings.

You’ll want to attend whether you are an elected official, planning commissioner, manager, clerk, or other official who makes “quasi-judicial decisions”—or just interested in your municipality’s responsibility for “doing due process.” Please click on the links below to RSVP.
