Limited funds and numerous demands on time make in-person trainings an impractical option for many elected officials. The MOST Center provides a free, self-paced, easy-to-access platform for elected leaders to get the stormwater training they need to communicate with their citizens, staff, and peers. Current courses cover regulatory basics, define stormwater terminology, showcase Bay-wide examples, and teach the importance of leadership in developing and financing effective stormwater management programs. Courses will be added each year to cover multiple skill levels and content areas such as stormwater financing, community and economic development, and programmatic issues.
As the MOST Center grows, training and resources will be tagged with the Elected Leaders icon to help local officials identify material aligned with their specific needs and interests. Visit the MOST Center often to look for new courses and Knowledge Center resources marked with the Elected Leaders icon.
The MOST Center will also serve as a forum for upcoming training events and discussion boards to promote collaboration and the integration of local efforts.
