National League of Cities and League of California Cities Executive Directors Invite California City Officials to Upcoming NLC Meeting in Austin, TX

September 26, 2014
The National League of Cities (NLC) annual Congress of Cities conference is less than two months away and will be held Nov. 19-22 in Austin, Texas.
 
Clarence Anthony, NLC executive director and Chris McKenzie, League of California Cities executive director, are preparing for this important four-day event and invite California city officials to join them in Austin. The partnership between the state leagues and NLC was established at the NLC’s founding and remains stronger than ever.

This year’s NLC conference will be jam-packed with workshops to prepare you for whatever comes your city’s way. Take your leadership to the next level by getting expert insights into relevant topics like climate resilience, veteran employment, economic development, and transportation technology. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get the emerging strategies and best practices you need to take your city into the future!
 
Take a field trip around Austin with one of NLC’s mobile workshops, which will showcase 16 of Austin’s creative solutions to common city challenges, like affordable housing and downtown development. Go on a hike through the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, taste organic produce at an urban farm, and visit an award-winning mixed-use redevelopment. You’re sure to find inspiration while learning all about the vibrant, innovative city of Austin.
 
You’ll also have plenty of chances to network with local leaders from all over the country, including a fantastic Closing Celebration at the LBJ Library, featuring all different kinds of live music and Austin’s best food! Catch up with your colleagues at the California reception, and make new connections at one of the networking events.
 
The League of California Cities and NLC continue to work as partners to make sure the voice of cities and towns is heard statewide and nationally.  We hope you’re able to come to Austin and take advantage of this wonderful networking opportunity to learn from your peers about the great things happening in cities around the country.
