The PSAB Municipal Legal Update is being held Aug. 26-27, 2015 at the Sheraton Harrisburg/Hershey. This program addresses the needs of solicitors, mayors, secretaries, managers, council members, police and fire chiefs, and finance directors.

The 2015 keynote speaker is Judge John E. Jones, III. He will speak about recent court decisions. In 2015, Judge Jones wrote the decision concerning intelligent design, and in 2014, Jones' ruling made same-sex marriage legal throughout PA.
