Miami Shores,FL—The Florida League of Cities (FLC) is pleased to announce Vice Mayor Sean Brady from Miami Shores Village has graduated from the institute for Elected Municipal Officials (lEMO).  Created more than 20 years ago as a way to educate newly elected officials on the intricacies of municipal government in a cost-effective manner, the IEMO grew out of a partnership between the Florida League of Cities and the John Scott Dailey Institute of Government.

“It was a very informative and engaging event; I was very impressed with the content, the speakers, and the dedicated group of elected municipal officials from across the state who attended.”

The IEMO is a comprehensive 16-hour course where participants learn about the numerous aspects of municipal government from a voluntary faculty of Florida's leading industry experts.  Topics include municipal government structure, revenue components and governmental accounting for cities, as well as intergovernmental relations and council relationships.

Class sizes are kept small, allowing participants to network and share ideas withother elected officials in a personal group setting.  By creating an environment where challenges and best practices are shared, many IEMO graduates have been able to develop solutions to local problems.

"I commend these officials for completing the class, it is a great municipal overview and very Florida- specific,” saidTallahassee Mayor ProTem and FLC President Gil Ziffer.  ”The League is very proud of this program offered through FLC University.  Florida is comprised of people from all over the world, and civic knowledge is a critical factor in the success of Florida's communities.  I encourage each of these new graduates to reach out to schools and civic organizations in their city to better educate our residents on the role municipal government plays in our daily lives.”
