We, at the KU Public Management Center, are honored to be the hosting agency for this annual conference for city and county leaders in Kansas. We partner with the Kansas Association of City/County Management (KACM) Conference Planning Committee and are pleased to present this as their association's spring 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. 

From keynotes to small breakout discussions, presentations to networking opportunities, we are excited about the conversations.

We hope you can join us next year.
