If you cannot register by the Sept. 2 deadline, on-site registration will be available. The League hotel blocks have all sold out however, hotel rooms can be found through individual hotels and online hotel reservation services.

City officials planning to attend should make note of the topics and sessions being offered this year.

Once again the Speaker Theater series will be offered featuring case studies of innovative projects and programs that have worked in California cities.
Ethics Training Available
For city officials that need to complete the AB 1234 ethics training, it will be offered on Wednesday, Oct. 5. Since 2005, public officials have been required to attend ethics training. They must complete it within one year of taking office and repeat the training every two years.
Keynote Speakers
There are several fantastic speakers lined up this year, especially the keynotes. On Wednesday, Oct. 5, listen as Jason Roberts of the Better Block Project  describes how to drive change in communities moving past unproductive committees and outdated regulations. 
One of the nation’s leading economists, Christopher Thornberg will captivate attendees on Thursday, Oct. 6, with his perspectives on California’s economy and some of the forces that could threaten the economy’s rebound — fluctuations in the price of oil, tech bubbles, China and the Middle East. Be there as he explores the stability of the economy, future flash points that cities should track and much more.
