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 (and anywhere else from which people might join us). 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.
