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 Lydia Lavelle has been leading Carrboro, NC since 2013.
