About the LEADING LOCAL Series
The past few years have been fraught with unprecedented challenges ranging from a global pandemic, to extreme natural disasters, to divisive and polarizing election cycles. Local government leaders are being asked to step up in entirely new ways. How can they serve as role models for their communities and their peers in these ever-changing times? LEADING LOCAL is a thought leadership forum from ILG that focuses on addressing difficult topics and sensitive issues local government leaders face. Sessions cover a wide range of issues and challenges like leading through conflict, civility and ethics, building personal resilience and more. LEADING LOCAL … because leadership starts at the local level. All LEADING LOCAL sessions will be specially curated with content for elected officials and staff at California cities, counties and special districts.
