LG 2030 at ICMA 2023
The ICMA - International City/County Management Association Annual Conference in Austin, TX this week was an outstanding opportunity to share our story and get feedback on Delegate projects. ICMA and Executive Director Marc Ott have been outstanding supporters of LG 2030 since the beginning.
On Monday, Danielle Dulin and Genesis D. Gavino conducted a very interactive session on community academies. Session attendees were warned they would have to work and they did. There were great dialogues that fed into the work of the "Communications Continuum" initiative.
On Tuesday, a standing room only group got a greater overview of the LG 2030 initiative from Julia Novak and Jillian McGuffey. Lauren Rose and Lisa Brown then led the group in an exercise on communications best practices getting ideas from the conference attendees present.
Other LG Delegates and Super Delegates at the conference included: Dan Bardzell, Danielle (Buschkoetter) Burke, Megan Caron, MPA, Kirsten C. Decker, Taylor Galusha, MPA, Kimberly Richardson, Tanya Ange, ICMA-CM, Craig Owens, Kim Nelson, Aimee Kane, and Jeanette Green. Also at conference steering committee members David Swindell, Pamela Antil, Mike Land, Chris Morrill, Bob O'Neill, Shayne Kavanagh, Wally Bobkiewicz and Amber Snowden.
LG 2030 also had opportunity to connect with many of the financial sponsors that made Convening 1 possible to thank them for their support: MissionSquare Retirement, Raftelis, Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), GovHR USA, GovTempsUSA, National Academy of Public Administration, Resource Exploration (ResourceX), Polco, SGR (Strategic Government Resources), Baker Tilly Public Sector Executive Recruitment, University of Nebraska at Omaha - School of Public Administration.
Great energy as we work toward Convening 2 at ASU School of Public Affairs January 26 and 27, 2024!!
