FLC Annual Conference

The Florida League of Cities annual conference is held each August in various locations throughout the state. The annual conference is an opportunity for municipal officials and senior staff to enhance leadership skills, share ideas with peers, discuss strategies for Florida’s future, and learn the latest in products and services designed for municipal governments. 
The 2018 Annual Conference will be held August 16-18 at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Fla. Registration will open May 1. Click here to view the event flyer.
