Registration is open for the annual Local Governance Summer Institute (LGSI @ Stanford)! Details are available on the Stanford website at lgsi.stanford.edu and on LGSI’s Facebook page. The 2018 seminar will be held July 22-27, 2018 on the Stanford University campus and there are reduced rate rooms available at a nearby hotel for LGSI participants.
This year’s faculty will again feature a blend of Stanford academics, Silicon Valley high-tech firms and entrepreneurs, state and local government senior executives, and representatives of regional think tanks including Cal Forward and the Bay Area Council Economic Institute. A new feature of the 2018 Institute is the Alumni Dinner, open to past participants of LGSI and the Berkeley Executive Seminar, held on Friday, July 27.
LGSI highlights the impacts of the innovations emerging from the unique ecosystem of the Silicon Valley in communities across the state and around the world. In particular, participants will explore cutting edge technological transformations and innovative policy solutions for the urban and transport challenges of today’s urban California. Presentations will address mobility, energy transition, water management and governance, as well as other sustainability and security issues. The focus is on a vision of transitioning towards the smarter communities that a clean and prosperous economy demands. This will be accomplished without losing perspective on everyday challenges to local executives such as public finance, ethics, and community engagement.
In addition to CCMF, LGSI is sponsored by the City Managers Department, the California Association of County Executives (CACE), Cal-ICMA, MMANC, and MMASC.
