Mayors Panel

The ELGL Annual Conference is fast approaching. We’ll be gathering in Durham, North Carolina on May 16 & 17 to learn from the brightest minds in local government. To get you ready for the conference we’ll be rolling out the agenda, announcing one session a day until you won’t be able to take it any longer and you’ll just have to attend. Register for #ELGL19.

Keynote: Mayors on Leading Cities & Driving Change

Mayors across the country are leading communities that are grappling with wicked problems. They set a vision for where their city is going and set the tone for policy, discussion, and focus. Three mayors from different backgrounds and points in their career will share their path to leadership, vision for their cities and their local government challenges. Mayor Nancy Vaughan was first elected to lead Greensboro, NC in 2013. Mayor Tara Campbell was selected as Mayor of Yorba Linda, CA in 2018. Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson has been leading Gary, IN since 2011.
