Is this guide necessary?

While this guide is not necessary to conduct councillor training using the accompanying handbooks, it should be useful. Each handbook includes training exercises to conduct several hours of experiential learning on the role covered in the essay. You could conduct successful training events by relying solely on the materials in the back of each handbook. But we think you can make better use of the accompanying materials if you consider some of the ideas we are about to share. Given the training exercises in each handbook, and in this guide, we hope you can become self-sufficient in your role as a trainer of elected officials.

These materials are designed to provide you with many options in your efforts to train local elected officials. Here are a few examples.
