LGA Celebrates Our 45th Anniversary

LGA will host a virtual conference Thursday and Friday, October 15 and 16. Registration will open September 1. We will offer our usual 9.5 hours of CLE, including two hours of Ethics. With two Zoom experiences under our belt, we have developed ways to make this conference a more LGA-like experience. There will be fun breaks between sessions, interactive sessions for practice groups, opportunities to win prizes, a virtual awards ceremony, a Zoom happy hour, and enhanced recognition of our stalwart sponsors.

  • Agenda The 2020 LGA Fall Conference Committee is working to provide a program with topics of interest and importance to local government attorneys. Below is a skeleton schedule to help you plan your time with us. The agenda will be updated as sessions are confirmed.

  • Registration Registration will open September 1. Members will need to log in to receive the member registration rate for online registration.
