Throughout the year and across the country, ELGL hosts frequent events to benefit our members.  From our signature annual conference to our friendly supper clubs, ELGL offers something for everyone.  What makes our events unique is that they are organized and implemented by our members who are working in local government so you can be sure that the topics will be relevant and presented by the brightest minds.

#CityHallSelfie Day

It's the best day of the year! #CityHallSelfie Day is August 15 and it's your chance to showcase your local gov love. Participation is easy: take a picture of yourself in front of your local government building. We'll have trophies, recognition and prizes for the people and organizations that show the most pride and creativity on the big day.  Access the media kit for everything you need to know to participate.

Pop Up Conferences

#ELGLPopUp conferences are multiple conferences, held on the same day, in multiple cities. These opportunities allow ELGL members to choose a conference location that is convenient for their travel and budget, while still uniting our members in a conference experience across the country.

Annual Conference

ELGL's annual conferences are signature two day events, and feature a wide variety of topics and speakers that showcase our commitment to a "big tent" learning opportunity about local government services, as well as tours of the hosting city/region to truly understand the unique local government challenges and opportunities.


#ELGLInspire is a unique program that inspires undergraduate students to pursue local government careers during a half-day learning opportunity, hosted on college campuses with partner organizations.

Supper Clubs

Supper Clubs are informal meet-ups for ELGL members to share a meal and talk about local government. ELGL members organize Supper Clubs. ELGL will coordinate online advertisement, member outreach, online registration, and event promotion. We'll also cover the cost of the first round or appetizers!


#ELGLRoadShow events take ELGL's unique style of local government conferencing on the road. ELGL coordinates the agendas and logistics (with your help) so you can bring a high quality training that incorporates ELGL's values of diversity, inclusion, affordability, creativity, and joy. #ELGLRoadShow events follow a similar agenda/format as the one day #ELGLPopUps events - with agendas that explore a wide variety of leadership and management topics across all local government disciplines.
