We’re typically looking for one-hour presentations that take place during the workweek. That said, we’re flexible—reach out with your vision and we’ll see what we can do! If you’re selected to present, we’ll work together to choose a date and time that works for both of us. We’ll handle the publicity and facilitate the session. If needed, we can also schedule a short tech check with you ahead of time.
Webinars are recorded and made available in our library for people unable to attend live.
ELGL members represent all parts of the local government field—you don’t need a specific title, tenure, or specialty to present with us. We’re looking for timely, relevant topics no matter what your job function. Educators, this includes you!
Have you done local government research or projects that you’re particularly passionate about sharing? A webinar could be a great place to start. You should also consider writing something for us! (link to submission page for that)
We often say “we’re all in this together” and that mindset shapes the way we work with the people who work in the private sector. We don’t differentiate between our members who work for local government, from people who work with local government. Things to keep in mind:
Our vision is to present content that our members will find helpful and relevant. Your presentation should focus on case studies, strategies, etc.—in other words, we’re not looking for sales pitches.
A webinar is also a great way to gauge interest in a topic for a longer cohort. Learn more about sponsorship opportunities here.
A good rule of thumb is to apply approximately one month in advance of when you’d like to present, which gives us time to work together to choose a date, polish a title and description, and promote your webinar to our network. That said, let us know on the application if you have a topic that you feel needs to be shared sooner—we’ll work with you to make it happen!
