2022 Programing: Magnetic Communities

Does your municipality attract or repel? That’s the funny thing about magnets; they can do either one. One pole of a magnet attracts, while the other pole repels. There’s no middle ground, your municipality is growing or shrinking. Either you’re drawing in new residents, businesses, ideas and energy, or pushing them down the road. The League’s Winter Chief Executives Workshop will present you with fresh ideas for becoming a Magnetic Municipality; one that draws in new ideas, new people and new energy
