Kansas City / County Management Conference

Join us as we host the 70th Kansas City/County Managers Conference.  Our goal is to provide relevant content for today's public service leaders. In addition to presenting informative and thought-provoking speakers, the conference provides a critical networking opportunity for local government leaders.

This year's theme is a commentary on our times. Solve | Re-solve | Resolved speaks to issues our local governments thought were addressed years ago, but are back again with a new twist.  For example: just as people are in the habit of recycling, new standards make it harder for municipalities to sell recycled plastics; or as you get comfortable running social media accounts, we worry about whether we are engaging with bots or trolls.   On this anniversary year, we can reflect how far we've come, and how much lies ahead.
