Annual Conferences

The National League of Cities' two annual conferences provide educational programming, training opportunities, and peer networking. They also provide the venue for NLC's governance activities including the meetings of the Board of Directors, Advisory Council and other NLC committees and councils.

  • Congress of Cities and Exposition

    NLC's largest gathering of city officials, the Congress of Cities is held in a different city each year in November or December. The conference provides educational content on the most pressing challenges facing city leaders. Conference attendees hear from prominent speakers and issue experts, participate in leadership training sessions, attend issue-specific workshops, mobile workshops, and leadership training sessions.

  • Congressional City Conference

    The 2013 Congressional City Conference offers opportunities to hear from respected national figures, network with other city leaders, participate in innovative workshops, learn new skills and lobby on Capitol Hill.

  • Future Conference Dates

    Plan to attend our conferences in the upcoming year.
