Dan Hill serves as a local government specialist at UW–Extension’s Local Government Center (LGC), whose mission is to provide leadership and coordination to UW–Extension educational programs that support local government—serving more than 5,000 locally elected and appointed county, city, village and municipal officials around the state—as well as expand the knowledge base for local government education. Hill’s areas of expertise include open meetings, open records, elections, parliamentary procedure and public policy education. He educates LGC constituents about these matters in a number of ways. “For example, I am frequently invited to speak with groups of local officials about the Wisconsin open meetings law and their responsibility to comply with it,” Hill says. He also serves half-time as Secretary of the Faculty and Staff at UW–Extension. Hill’s CALS degree is in agricultural economics.
