Mixin’ It Up with Jill Silverboard, City of Clearwater, FL

Posted on September 1, 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? 

  • Queen
  • The Police
  • Tom Petty

When I learned the ICMA Conference was being held in Seattle, I thought…. Wow – I’ve always wanted to visit (the) Seattle (Conference Center)!
I knew local government was the career for me when….. I realized local government is the closest branch to the people we serve and I can see the results of our work, every day, in my own community.
The Seahawks lost the Super Bowl by passing instead of running from the 1-yard line. Give us your best tip(s) for rebounding from difficult situations.
