UPCOMING NLC EVENTS
Our Federal Partners at the National League of Cities (NLC) have scheduled three learning opportunities this week, meant to help local officials navigate the recovery. Here they are.
a. WEBINAR | Doubling Down on an Equitable and Resilient Recovery | Tuesday, May 12, 2:00 PM ET
Now more than ever, cities using a resilience lens to address economic, social, and environmental challenges can better protect their residents, infrastructure, and natural systems. Join us for a discussion with two/three experts who work closely with communities and their leaders to prepare for shocks, stresses, and “precovery”.
b. WEBINAR | The Forward Together: A Local Government Virtual Conference | Tuesday, May 12, 12:00 PM ET
Join the session featuring NLC at this free, online conference being held on May 12 and 14. COVID-19 has highlighted an issue that has long challenged mayors and council members responding to the needs of their communities: state preemption. This panel will explore how preemption has stymied local efforts to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, and what state interference, or local-state cooperation, could look like in the future.
c. VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLE | From Response to Recovery: Architects Partner with City Leaders in Designing Alternate Health Care Sites and Rethinking Community Spaces Post-COVID 19 | Wednesday, May 13th 1:00 PM ET
From identifying alternative healthcare sites to advising on proper health and safety protocols to transition out of quarantine, architects across the country have been taking action against COVID-19. Join The American Institute of Architects to learn how architects can be your partners in navigating a post-pandemic life. Together, we can create safer workplaces, public spaces, schools, and retail for our communities. Participation is limited to ensure interaction and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
