2013 TML Annual Conference and Exhibition
We hope you will join us in Austin for the 2013 TML Annual Conference and Exhibition on October 8-11. The Opening General Session keynote speaker Cheryl Cran will explore a topic that all cities face-addressing (and embracing) the generational divide.
Opening General Session
(Wednesday, October 9 at 10:30 a.m.)
Engaging All of the Generations in the Community
Cheryl Cran, President, Synthesis at Work Inc., Vancouver, BC, Canada
The times they are a changing, and the way we communicate and connect with our community is shifting rapidly. As city officials, we are tasked with meeting the needs of the community, and that means engaging every generation. In this session, by the author of Leading Across the Digital Divide, you will discover more about the generational impact on community engagement and how adapting to the different generational attitudes can improve services overall.
Register for the conference now.
