National League of Cities and Salt Lake City Go Virtual for 2021 Conference

September 15, 2021 - (2 min read)

The National League of Cities (NLC) and Salt Lake City announced today the decision to move the 2021 City Summit to a fully virtual attendee experience. NLC CEO and Executive Director Clarence E. Anthony and Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall issued the following statement:   

“Both NLC and Salt Lake City were looking forward to the opportunity to bring thousands of local elected officials and municipal staff from across the country to beautiful Salt Lake City, but as we have learned over the last year, caution is paramount as our nation continues to respond to the evolving pandemic. It was important for us to prioritize the health and safety of NLC members, stakeholders and staff and also the residents of Salt Lake City by transitioning to a virtual event.  

While we are disappointed we will be missing the opportunity to meet in-person this fall, we are looking forward to hosting City Summit in Salt Lake City in the near future.

Cities, towns and villages remain on the frontlines of ensuring the health and safety of communities across the country and are making these difficult decisions each day. We are grateful for the support of our event attendees, community partners and sponsors as we navigate this unprecedented time.”
