This year's theme is: Achieving Equity Through Action

Coalition building, media management and reacting to violence in your community - in 2018, these are key skills every local elected official should have at the ready. At this year's NBC-LEO Summer Conference, you'll work on these skills and more with fellow African American elected officials and experts from around the country. In addition, you'll learn how to uplift the minority businesses in your community and learn best practices from the people who know local government best. 

Located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Hollywood is a prime travel destination anytime of year, and a great backdrop to a vibrant and exciting conference. With networking and learning activities alike, you can expect to: 

Enhance your network of elected officials and statewide leaders 

  • Learn about timely issues in special seminars that will expand your skill sets
  • Strengthen your governance skills
  • Adapt community programs as best practices for your community
