The NLC University program builds on core skills for local elected officials, appointed officials, city and state league staff. Every year, seminars and workshops are offered at the Congress of Cites and the Congressional City Conference, along with an annual Leadership Summit and a variety of regional programs and webinars. Participants can engage in NLC University events to develop and share innovations—from creative financing strategies and cutting-edge technology, to new policy solutions—that challenge assumptions and take a fresh approach to long-standing problems.
