Leadership Summit

The 2019 Leadership Summit & Mayors Conference: April 12 & 13, Salina.

Leadership, like many things in life, is a learned behavior. Leadership takes time, effort, practice, and most importantly, cannot be done alone and without others.

The League of Kansas Municipalities and the Kansas Mayors Association invites you to attend the 2019 Leadership Summit and Kansas Mayors Conference set for April 12 & 13 in Salina, Kansas at the Hilton Garden Inn.

This two-day event provides elected and appointed city leaders an opportunity to gather together and share their experiences as well as learn from others. The Kansas Mayors Association’s conference will coincide with the League’s Leadership Summit. Mayors will kick-off at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, and all other conference attendees may join later that afternoon. Cost to attend the two-day conference is $160 for League Members.
