The next meeting of the Delegates will be on Thursday June 29 at 3 PM ET

Planning for Convening 2


The School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University will host Convening 2 on January 26 and 27, 2024.


This second convening of the Local Government 2030 initiative will bring together the 50 Delegates and 12 Super Delegates that met in November, 2022 at Convening 1, 20 elected official Delegates (10 City, 10 County) and a group of participants selected from representatives of the 34 local government associations/groups sponsoring the Convening. Each association/group will be invited to select two representatives to attend. The maximum number of Delegates/participants in Convening 2 will be 150.

The purpose of the Convening 2 will be to review the work of the three initiative groups from Convening 1, receive feedback and input from the elected official delegates and to compose a final report. The final report will contain recommendations to be submitted to the Convening sponsoring organizations, cities, counties and regional councils around the United States for further work and action.

Each of the Convening sponsoring organizations will be asked to endorse the final report and commit to continue the work started by Local Government 2030 in their own organizations.

GFOA CEO Chris Morrill, NAPA President Terry Gerton, NLC CEO Clarence Anthony, ICMA CEO Matt Ott and NACo CEO Matt Chase have agreed to be co-chairs of Convening 2.

Elected Official Delegates

The Organizing Committee is finalizing a recruitment plan for elected official delegates. Recruitment will begin June 5, 2023.
