We look forward to your attendance!

Drones are on the cusp of becoming a lot more common in America’s neighborhoods and cities. As technology advances, drones have the potential to revolutionize city logistics - from package delivery to emergency response. With the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Integrated Pilot Program and more drones taking flight each day, the National League of Cities (NLC) is gathering industry and thought leaders to discuss the next steps. We need to prepare for drones in our skies and how they may impact our lives, our cities and the country as they take flight.
