Event Overview:

NLC's premier gathering of city officials, the Congress of Cities is held each year in November or December in a selected city. The conference provides educational content on the most pressing challenges facing city leaders. Conference attendees hear from prominent speakers and issue experts, participate in leadership training sessions, attend issue-specific workshops, mobile workshops, and leadership training sessions.

Attendee Information:

Who Should Attend?

Anyone interested in how cities are solving problems and becoming greater places to live will benefit from attending. The conference is especially useful to mayors, council members, newly elected officials, city managers, and municipal department heads. Although membership in the National League of Cities is not required to attend, representatives from member cities enjoy discounted registration.

What You’ll Experience

At the Congress of Cities you’ll enjoy innovative sessions, mobile workshops, inspiring keynote addresses, skill-building seminars, and great opportunities to meet colleagues from across the country.

The exhibit hall brings attendees the latest products, services and ideas – direct from manufacturers, consultants, and specialists – and provides opportunities for idea sharing during the conference. Activities are planned in the exposition hall during the conference to give you the opportunity to meet and talk with exhibitors.
