Unprecedented Ideas. Team Building. Networking.

SUMMER 2020: We’re going virtual with the TLG Experience.


Now more than ever we need to come together as a community and pursue our endeavors to become leading local government innovators.

These are unprecedented times for all of you who serve in local government and we are grateful for all you are doing to keep all those who live and work in your communities safe and healthy.

Our first Plan B for TLG was to move the conference dates to early September. Still, as the crisis continues to unfold, the fiscal and travel restrictions of the post-pandemic world would not reflect an understanding of the many challenges you and your communities will be facing.

Yet, we know you still thirst for opportunities to learn, network and celebrate. From this desire, the TLG Experience was born [Plan C.] We’re now busy creating an online experience for this summer, designed to showcase the TLG content you know, love and need. We’re also working on the specific summer dates and will keep you updated once confirmed.

We’ll feature inspiring keynotes, best case responses to the crises caused by COVID-19, and educational sessions spotlighting the craft, creativity and innovation of local government communities.  We’ll also facilitate meaningful networking, host personal wellness and distress breaks, and celebrate our 2020 Alliance for Innovation Award winners.

Local governments are already dealing with the financial impacts of this crisis. To support our Alliance Membership Community during this time we will be offering deep discounts on the cost of the TLG 2020 Experience.  In addition, the TLG Experience will include 100% free access to furloughed and laid off employees of Alliance for Innovation Member organizations.

 What about current registrations?

If you are already registered for TLG we will provide you an organizational credit, allowing you to provide access to additional members of your team. Alternatively, you may request a refund in the amount of the difference in the registration fees, or a combination of the two. We will forward new attendee information when it becomes available.

If you requested a cancellation due to travel restrictions, Alliance staff will be reaching out to discuss your registration on an individual basis.


TLG continues to be the gathering place for trailblazers and entrepreneurs to unleash their super-powers! We look forward to seeing you online Summer 2020.
