The Indiana Township Association provides educational opportunities for elected township officials and their employees.
The ITA will hold its annual Trade Show September 24, 2014, at the Sherdan at Keystone Crossing in Indianapolis. We welome businesses to participate in the full conference (Sept. 21-24) as sponsors of the event.
This three-day event is designed to be a well-rounded experience for Trustees, Township Board Members, Township Clerks, Township Assistance Personnel, Fire Chiefs, and Township Attorneys. We also plan to welcome trustee and board member candidates at the invitation of retiring officials.
Early Bird Registration & Hospitality for attendees will be provided on Sunday evening, September 21. This kicks off three full days of learning and networking opportunities all in a comfortable & convenient setting of the Sheridan at Keystone Crossing in Indianapolis.
Opening Session on Monday, September 22 will be an opportunity to hear from experts in their fields on topics pertinent to all township officials.
A full day of seminar breakouts will be conducted on Tuesday, September 23. Topics will include: Techniques for Social Work, Township Assistance Administration, Township Policies, Addressing Mental Health Issues with Clients, Risk Management, Cemetery Care, and many more. The State Board of Accounts will be providing examiners to give you guidance with any issues you may have with your township. Plan to bring any relevant files which you would like to address one-on-one with SBOA personnel.
Tuesday's luncheon will be a celebratory retirement party for outgoing Trustees and Board Members. Please plan to attend and bring along your replacement, if that has been determined (unopposed in November).
On Tuesday evening the ITA will present its annual awards for Trustee, Board Member, Township & Employee for 2014. Please consider nominating an official or township that has demonstrated good government "beyond the call of duty".

The distinguished award was announced during the ITA's annual educational conference, held in Indianapolis on September 24th and is "given to a trustee who demonstrates passion and ingenuity for the job of trustee"Â, according to Executive Director Debbie Driskell. "For that, Trustee Roush certainly possesses those qualities and more!"Â she said.
