The three-day Annual Conference remains a critical mainstay in the portfolio of services provided by the League. By serving 18,000 people,it is the single largest local government event in the United States.

Offering hundreds of exhibits showing products and services to aid municipalities, it is a central point for learning what is out there to meet local governments' needs. Some of the features of this year's conference include:

• 80 League Educational sessions and more than 50 additional
sessions produced by affiliated municipal professional associations.
• Training for newly elected governing body members.
• Several sessions focused on ethics training. New technical skills and new technologies creating new efficiencies.

The Annual Conference provides all these opportunities while continuing to charge the lowest registration rate of any municipal league in the country.
