Thank you for a great year! The eighth annual #CityHallSelfie Day will be on Tuesday, August 15, 2023!
This is your chance to showcase your #localgov love. Participation is easy:
Take a picture of yourself, with a group, or with community member in front of your local government building
Post the picture on social media with the hashtag #CityHallSelfie
Tag us @ELGLNetwork on Facebook, @ELGL50 on Twitter, @ELGL50 on Instagram or *NEW* @localgov on TikTok.
We'll have trophies, recognition, and prizes for the people and organizations that show the most pride and creativity on the big day.
This day is all about local government pride.
So it doesn't matter if you work for a town, city, county, library, special district - just hop in front of your building, snap a picture, and use the hashtag to share it with the world!
