California city leaders will gather for the annual event on Oct. 16 – 18, 2019 in Long Beach.
Municipal clerks are proficient at the mechanics of a local election. Whether its candidate nominations, campaign filings or certifying results, local elections officials are well versed in the technical aspects of the Elections Code and conducting the election itself. This session will go beyond the technicalities and facilitate an understanding of voter demographics and voter behavior. It is only through this deeper understanding of voting patterns and psychology that we can learn to better serve and engage residents.
Participants will learn how national and state conversations in the elections space affect local elections, why it is important to understand community demographics to fully engage our constituency, and the social responsibility of the local elections official on the front lines of this democratic process.
Online registration ends on Sept. 24. The four-hour workshop is an additional cost to attend; $150 per attendee from a member city/$300 per attendee from a non-member city. CMC/MMC accreditation pending approval.
For those who wish to also attend the Annual Conference, member city full conference registration starts at $550 if you register before Aug. 14. Registration includes access to general and educational sessions (except the City Clerks Workshop

A Note about Housing
There are several fantastic properties for lodging this year around the Long Beach Convention Center. A limited number of reduced room rates are available for registered attendees; please register first before receiving the links in your registration confirmation email to reserve hotel rooms.
Hotel reservations are only available online.
The League has been alerted that unauthorized housing companies (called hotel poachers) have been contacting registered attendees and exhibitors offering cheaper rates at hotels during the Annual Conference. This practice, also known as room pirating, is a scam that all attendees should be aware of in order to avoid passing along personal and financial information.
