About the webinar

A stable and positive relationship between a local government manager and their council is crucial to the success of any city, town, county, or village. The use of good data, both qualitative and quantitative, in order to inform your decision-making process can assist in ensuring your council is satisfied, your residents are equally represented, and resources are prioritized and used in a well-thought-out manner.

ICMA, Zencity, and local government leaders from the Midwest share experiences, successes, and challenges in getting their council on board with strategic decisions.
