Sweatshirts

Sweatshirts are a way to keep everyone warm (the rooms are sometimes chilly) and raise money to offer scholarships for the Municipal Professionals Institute.

The 2024 sweatshirt will be a hooded sweatshirt.  The hoodie is sage with a burnt orange vintage faded logo.  The cost of the sweatshirts will be $32 ($34 for XL-XXXL) and can be purchased through registration services while registering for the Academy.  Hooded sweatshirts will go on sale with Academy registration in March 2024.  Your purchase helps support the ISU scholarship fund for the Institute and can be purchased until May 25, 2024.
