Many municipal job positions have specific training and networking needs. The Municipal Association of South Carolina's affiliate associations offer opportunities to meet those needs.
The Municipal Court Administration Association of SC, which promotes the professional and sound administration of courts for cities and towns, now offers "MCAA 101" courses. These courses are designed to provide the staff of municipal courts with the skills critical to their positions.
The training is offered in three sessions taking place in Columbia throughout the year, with no requirement to attend all three. Session A, which will take place February 19 – 20, covers charges, bonds and court basics. Session B, scheduled for June 23 – 24, covers dispositions, records retention, alternative sentencing, reporting and an introduction to court financials. Session C, taking place October 20 – 21, covers court financials.
