About the Program

The Jim Tillotson Service Program provides city attorneys and MMIA defense counsel an opportunity to further their understanding of risk and exposure issues specific to Montana cities and towns. Created in 2001, the programs have been well accepted by those in attendance. The educational format provides in-depth discussion of a limited number of subjects.

About Jim Tillotson

Jim Tillotson served as Billings City Attorney for many years. He was a valuable resource for municipal legal issues throughout the state, assisting countless cities and towns with legal questions. He actively worked the legislative process in defense of municipal interests. Jim was instrumental in the growth of the MMIA, serving on its Board of Directors, as Board Chair and as Chair of the Claims Committee. The MMIA is proud to honor Jim’s memory through this Program, continuing the ethic of service to Montana cities and towns that was a large part of Jim’s life.
