2021 ICMA: Let’s Restart & Begin to Reimagine.

The experience of the past year is a unique opportunity to reset—and we’re creating a global conference event just for local government professionals, thought leaders, experts, and students who need a space to learn from the hardships, focus on what matters, and chart a new course.

Join us in Portland, Oregon, and digitally, to share and receive new ideas, strategies, resources, and solutions for managing local governments – even during these ever-changing times.
