Corporate Partner breakfast sessions will be held on Monday, March 11, from 7:30-8:45 AM. A listing of workshop titles and presenting companies/organizations follows (room locations will be available in the on-site conference program guide):

NLC's goal is to provide a wide breadth of corporate partner sessions covering a variety of issues that complement the overall conference programming. The Partners will deliver case studies and best practices, provide industry analysis important to city officials, and create dialogue and the exchange of ideas on various topics, including cloud computing, sustainable water systems, homeownership preservation, and smarter social programs.

Corporate Partners had the exclusive opportunity to submit proposals, and the sessions were selected based on their educational value to delegates. Timeliness of the issue or solution, applicability to municipalities, and strength of the session description were important factors in selecting from the pool of suggested presentations.
