Summer 2020 Annual Meeting Announcement

We are disappointed to announce today that we are canceling our Summer 2020 Annual Meeting in Tacoma, WA. We look forward to seeing you in Tacoma for the Summer 2021 Annual Meeting instead.

Our core work is to provide mayors with high quality, in-person learning opportunities that lead to innovation in cities, and Mayor Woodards was prepared to show us all a great time! However, the COVID-19 pandemic and its broad-reaching implications prevent us from meeting this year. We also know that this is an incredibly stressful time for city leaders, and asking mayors to leave their communities does not support you most effectively right now. We look forward to bringing you dynamic content and opportunities for in-person peer networking as soon as we can do so safely.

“I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to welcome you to Tacoma this summer. But, we mayors are on the front line of this crisis. That requires us to stay safe and stay close to our communities. I can’t wait to welcome you next summer.”

– Mayor Woodards, Tacoma, WA
