This white paper provides a summary of results from a survey distributed to elected county, municipal, and town elected officials.  Results are presented to illustrate the need these elected officials perceived for training in various training categories.  Survey questions were also asked about preferred training format, as well as the barriers to participation in training programs.  The last white paper in this series will provide recommendations for addressing the gaps in training and education resources relative to existing needs.
