NLC hosts two annual conferences to connect city leaders from all over the country and provide the training and resources that will make their jobs easier and their communities stronger. City Summit is the nation’s biggest conference for local leaders, and takes place every fall in a new host city that NLC considers a model in a key area of local government. The Congressional City Conference brings delegates together in Washington, D.C. every spring to learn about and advocate for the most pressing issues facing cities in that year. Both conferences provide the venue for NLC's governance activities, including the meetings of the Board of Directors, Advisory Council, and other NLC committees and councils.
