Mixin’ It Up with Caroline Smith, SeeClickFix

Posted on August 15, 2015

For the second year in a row, ELGL will be co-hosting an event 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.

If you could pick any three bands (dead or alive) as the opening act for the Dueling Pianos event, which would you choose?
Lauryn Hill
Icona Pop
Jesse McCartney (circa 2008, duh)
When I learned the ICMA Conference was being held in Seattle, I thought... I’m so pumped to check out/learn from the city’s biking infrastructure & bring nuggets of wisdom back home to New Haven, CT!  
I knew local government was the career for me when… I began living in New Haven, the greatest small city in America (#gscia), and wanted to help hard-working folks make our city even greater.
The #13Percent Initiative focuses on increasing diversity in local government. Does local government have an issue?
Let’s expand the definition of what good local government leadership looks like. And that starts by telling the right stories. That’s why I’m so grateful for ELGL — a group that does an amazing job of relentlessly elevating a diverse, inclusive collection of voices in local government.
