2015 Winter Conference Update: Join the Planning Committee & Register

The Winter Conference might seem like a long time from now, but it will be here before you know it. Please check out two important announcements:

1) Go to NCLGBA.org for hotel room reservation information for the 2015 NCLGBA Winter Conference (December 9-11, 2015). We will be heading to lovely downtown Asheville this winter, and staying at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel. You can make reservations online by clicking here or by calling the hotel (1-828-252-8211).

2) Join us on Thursday, September 10th at 12:00pm at the South Fork Recreation Center in Winston-Salem for the 2015 Winter Conference Planning Committee Meeting. The address is 4403 Country Club Road, Winston-Salem, NC.

A great conference depends on the great ideas and help of our conference planning committee. If you are interested in joining us for lunch and a (fascinating/intriguing/thought-provoking/riveting) discussion on potential budget related conference sessions, please contact Justin Amos (jamos@charlottenc.gov) or Stephen Hawryluk (stephenh@cityofws.org). Please respond by Friday, August 28th so we can make sure we have enough food, also let us know if you would prefer a vegetarian meal option.

Planning Committee responsibilities include selecting relevant topics, scheduling interesting and innovative speakers, and facilitating sessions during the conference. This is a chance to serve in a leadership role with the NCLGBA, contribute to an important professional development opportunity, and network with other local government professionals. If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, but would like to suggest topics or speakers, all ideas are welcome just send us an email.
