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… Chiefs and BBQ!

The biggest issue facing local government is… Managing population growth and associated development.

My pro tip for getting the most out of professional conferences… Plan your itinerary ahead of time!

If I had to create a presidential ticket with my top two mentors, I’d select… Eric Peterson (Town of Hillsborough, NC) and Tansy Hayward (City of Raleigh)
