The 2014 Congress of Cities and Exposition will showcase the dynamic ways cities are driving change and finding successful solutions to the most pressing challenges in local government.
City officials and staff from across the country will come together in Austin, Texas for a unique opportunity to share best practices and learn strategies to promote local economic and financial health, improve the built and natural environment, and ensure quality of life for all city residents.
A wide ranging selection of workshops designed to engage participants and share the most promising skills, strategies, and best practices to continue to keep the nation's cities and towns prosperous.
Host city Austin will offer off-site workshops, free of charge to registered delegates, to showcase collaborative solutions to issues facing local government.
Throughout the conference, NLC member-city officials will participate in the important work of governing the association. Most of the governance meetings listed will be open to the public and you are encouraged to stop in to observe and consider how you might become involved.
Educational seminars are crafted so participants obtain current resources, develop strategies, build skills, and engage in small group discussions and exercises with their peers from other communities.
Special tours created each year by the host city offer spouses and guests the chance to explore the city for its educational value.
Exhibitors can increase their visibility among attendees by investing in an exhibit hall opportunity. These opportunities, exclusive to exhibitors, will give your company/organization expanded recognition during the two days of the exposition.
