As we prepare for the ELGL & ICMA joint event at the ICMA Conference, attendees describe the current state of local government, their mentors, ways to strengthen local government, and of course, their dream six-pack. Link: Raise Your Hand If You’re Going “Back to the Future” with ELGL and ICMA.

1. Name your career mentors. 

2. Describe the current state of local government. 

Fun, exciting, somewhat stressed

3. During her presidency, Bonnie Svrcek encouraged ICMA members to do “Just One Thing” for the organization. What can we do to strengthen local government? 

Encourage young professionals to become involved in local government either as a career or to serve on a committee

4. In keeping with the beer tasting theme, tell us what we’d find in your ideal six pack. 

I might find by abs, but they may be lost.  Perhaps a 6 of Waffle Haus Ale!
