I Love BBQ: Tonya Walton, City of Raleigh, NC

Kansas City

ELGL is co-hosting the hottest social event at #ICMA16 in Kansas City, MO – the Sunday evening BBQ Mix & Mingle. No one likes to attend an event when they don’t know anyone else attending, so ELGL is publishing daily “I Love BBQ” profiles of our registered attendees to give you a sneak peek and preview of your fellow local government BBQ aficionados. Learn more about the creative and innovative local government leaders you’ll meet at this ICMA mixer:

When I think of Kansas City, I think about… KCStat!

The biggest issue facing local government is… Managing growth (development, historic culture/neighborhoods, affordable housing)

My pro tip for getting the most out of professional conferences… Spend time planning which sessions to attend. Waiting until the last minute can make it overwhelming or, even worse, you’ll skim over a great program. (Also, bring really comfortable walking shoes.)
