Congress of Cities comes to Seattle

The 2013 Congress of Cities and Exposition, to be held November 13-16 in Seattle, will offer learning and networking opportunities to city officials, including a number of dynamic new workshop formats to stimulate discussion. You don’t have to be a NLC city member to participate.

Mobile workshops, spontaneous engagement activities and robust networking opportunities are being planned for this year’s conference to maximize the overall experience for all conference delegates. Learning from someone else is the fastest way to learn, say social scientists, and conferences – like the Congress of Cities and Exposition – make use of this proven method of building knowledge and fostering innovation.

Take advantage of the rare opportunity to attend this national event and meet colleagues from around the country without having to travel out of state!

NLC companion event in Seattle, November 12-14

Take advantage of another national event in Seattle! City leaders can also participate in the 2013 National Summit on Your City’s Families, the nation’s largest gathering of municipal leaders who are working to improve the lives of children, youth and families in their communities. The theme of the 2013 Summit is “Leading and Managing for Results.” Summit attendees will gain access to new tools that can help them address local challenges while tracking and sustaining progress over time, and will shape future directions for city efforts nationally by helping to define key benchmarks for action on behalf of children and families. Sponsored by the National League of Cities Institute for Youth, Education and Families
