The 2020 Transforming Local Government Conference will take place May 5-8 in Phoenix, AZ.

What to Expect

TLG is presented in partnership with the Alliance for Innovation and The City of Reno and County of Washoe, NV. It will be multiple days of carefully curated workshops, presentations and tours that will bring together more than 500 of the U.S. and Canada’s best and brightest municipal innovators.

The conference is designed for the civic disruptor, the municipal innovator, the team builder, the change-maker who wants to make communities, especially their local governments, even better.

It will be multiple days of carefully curated workshops, presentations and tours that will bring together more than 700 of the U.S. and Canada’s best and brightest municipal innovators.
