Mixin’ It Up with Brian Moran, City of Cleveland, TN

Posted on September 17, 2015

For the second year in a row, ELGL will be co-hosting an event with ICMA at the ICMA Conference. This year we’re bringing a couple of pianos and booking a much larger room. More than 500 local government professionals from all areas of local government will attend. Registration will continue until we reach maximum capacity. We recommend registering as soon as possible. Let’s get prepared for the ELGL and ICMA “Mixing in Perfect Harmony” event by hearing from our guests.

When I learned the ICMA Conference was being held in Seattle, I thought…
what an incredible opportunity to experience a different part of our country and network with a great group of people.
I knew local government was the career for me…
…after the completion of my first internship with the city manager’s office.
