We’ve been invited back to Wisconsin! The League of Wisconsin Municipalities (LWM) has invited a team of ELGL members to present a “deep dive” at the 118th Annual Conference. (We’ll never forget our presentation from the very first LWM Conference in 1898.)
We’ll be deep diving on community engagement. H/T to Gail Sumi.
An amazing and award winning group of Engaging Local Government Leaders are leading a Deep Dive Session on Wednesday morning at the League’s Annual Conference.
