Join leaders from across the country for the NLC University Leadership Summit
October 2 - October 5, 2017
This year's theme is Leadership for Inclusion
The NLC University convenes elected officials, municipal leaders, city staff and industry professionals annually at the NLC University Leadership Summit. By design, NLC University seeks to engage everyone under one banner of inclusion. Summit excitement and learning begins long before arrival – you’re already engaged in local efforts to improve the quality of life for all residents. NLC University values your unique perspective and we challenge everyone to bring a definition of what inclusion means personally and for the communities where you live, work and play.
The leadership summit provides attendees with an opportunity to recognize and reflect with peers as we aim to strengthen the profile of your cities, towns and villages. Additionally, the Leadership Summit will equip you with specific tools and a stronger national network to refine your understanding and implementation of inclusion. Join us October 2 – 5, 2017 in sunny San Diego, California.
NLC members earn 10 credits in the NLC University Certificate Program.
Audience: City and state officials, private sector representatives and nonprofit leaders.
