How to Foster City-County Collaboration
Wednesday, December 1, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Location: Webinar
Government closest to the people governs best.  Cities and counties certainly both fit this idea.

More than any other level of government, cities and counties have a direct effect on the day-to-day lives of citizens, providing key services and strategic leadership. Together, they comprise a community’s local government, and they often serve their constituencies under similar goals.

However, there are still significant differences between the two bodies, and challenges can arise when trying to work together.  Overcoming  those challenges is necessary to yield the greatest results for the community.

This session will provide an overview of the importance of city and county collaboration, offer practical tips on fostering effective relationships, and review best practices. Attendees will leave this session prepared to develop and strengthen city-county partnerships in their hometown.

All municipal and county officials are encouraged to attend.  Registrants will learn the following:
  • The value of city-county collaboration
  • The basics of city-county structures
  • Challenges, from a Risk Management perspective
  • Tips and best practices

This web-based course is $50 for NCLM Members. For Non-NCLM members, this web-based course is available for $60, plus applicable tax. This course is designated for 1.0 credit hour toward the Advancing Municipal Leadership certification program.
