According to a press release from the Idaho City Clerks, Treasurers, and Finance Officers Association, the group will be having its annual meeting in the Coeur d’Alene Best Western. The opening meeting will occur on Wednesday morning and more will follow into the weekend.
According to the release, “This annual event features training for over 100 city officials across the state. The opening keynote will feature music therapist Audrey Draper discussing the importance of mental health. Attendees will learn to identify a peer who may be struggling, how to gain access to mental health resources, and skills to help them cope with the challenges brought on by COVID-19 in their communities in addition to tips for maintaining their own mental health. Attendees will each receive a toolkit with resources to help them navigate life’s challenges.
You’re invited to attend the opening session from 9-10:15 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21 to learn more about the Tandem Mental Health tour presented by the League of Idaho Cities, the Association of Idaho Cities’ nonprofit arm. This presentation will also be available by request to city Mayor’s Youth Advisory Councils and others across Idaho.
The conference continues through Friday with an awards banquet Thursday night honoring hard-working city officials from across Idaho.
