Registration fee is $45.00  The meeting dates and locations are as follows:

Best Practices:  How to Work Collaboratively with your Collectors Office

We will have a lively discussion on the best practices to work collaboratively with your City/Town Collector’s Office.  This discussion will focus on how the staffs from both departments can help each other while ultimately helping our customers – the public! This seminar will be interesting for Clerks from both the Assessing and Collectors’ Offices. Bring your questions, stories and experience with you.
