What a great start to Congress of Cities! This morning, NLC welcomed city leaders from all across the nation to the vibrant–and sunny!–city of Austin to begin the conference.
The conference kicked off in full-force. Nine NLC University leadership training seminars educated ambitious attendees on topics ranging from historic preservation to public speaking, and nine mobile workshops introduced delegates to forward-thinking programs throughout Austin that city leaders can replicate in their home communities, such as affordable housing, green education, and an urban farm.
In the afternoon, NLC Policy and Advocacy Committees convened and took important steps in NLC’s governance process in advance of the Annual Business meeting taking place this Saturday.
This evening, city leaders gathered for the Welcome Reception, where they gathered ideas from exhibitors and made new connections in the impressive Exhibit Hall!
