Six conferences in one day means that the #ELGL16 family is spread across the country – from Durham to Portland (and Chicago, Dallas, Denver and Menlo Park).

ELGL’s mission is to connect, communicate and educate. And while we can promise that each #ELGL16 pop up location will communicate and educate about local government topics, geography makes it hard to truly connect with our amazingly diverse membership.

And so we’re assigning each #ELGL16 attendee to a band.  Your #ELGL16 band is your chance to form connections with other ELGL members, even if they’re not attending the same pop-up location as you.

The #ELGL16 planning committee hopes that you’ll find a way to communicate with your bandmates before, during and after the conference. Ways you can do this:

  • Connect on LinkedIn
  • Follow them on Twitter
  • Friend them on Facebook
  • Share your stories from #ELGL16
  • Meet up (if you’re at the same pop-up location) and sit next to each other during meals or sessions
  • Snap a photo with your band mates and share with the other locations

This is our way of making the nationwide ELGL family a little smaller and more manageable as you continue your public service career. To quote the legendary Steven Van Zandt:

Band members have a special bond. A great band is more than just some people working together. It’s like a highly specialized army unit, or a winning sports team. A unique combination of elements that becomes stronger together than apart.
