Association Highlight: Field Services

The Municipal Association of SC has two field services managers who travel among the state's 271 municipalities to help officials address their issues of local concern.

Identifying and resolving minor difficulties early often prevents them from growing into major problems later. When officials identify significant questions or challenges, field services managers are available to provide hands-on technical assistance. Beyond keeping in touch and answering questions, they attend city and town council meetings and conduct informational sessions and goal-setting workshops.
