TML Training Events and Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

Posted on March 16, 2020 at 3:07 PM by Jen Stamps

TML is monitoring developments related to the novel coronavirus – including tracking travel restrictions, statewide developments, and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  We want to assure all city officials that your safety and security are our top priorities.

In light of increased city travel restrictions and the CDC’s recommendation to cancel all events of 50 or more, we are cancelling or postponing most TML training events taking place between now and May 15, including the Emotional Intelligence Workshop,  Leadership Academy, and Small Town Conference.   City officials registered for these events will be notified and registration fees will be fully refunded.  If feasible, we’ll reschedule these events later in the year.

We are considering offering the TML Budget and Tax Rate Workshop on April 23 (Austin) as a webinar instead of in-person training.  Registrants will be notified when details are worked out. 

At this time, we’re still planning to proceed with TML training events held after May 15.  If the situation changes due to a regional quarantine or state emergency declaration, TML will reschedule or cancel other upcoming training events and notify all registrants.

TML Event Cancellation Policy

Registrants whose events take place between now and May 15, or whose travel or other plans are impacted by the coronavirus may request a full refund.

Attendees should contact their hotels directly to cancel reservations, and are responsible for any cancellation or change fees.
