New Conference Features Explained:
“Ask an Expert” Roundtables: At this new roundtable session Sunday morning, League staff and Municipal Business Alliance representatives will be seated at numbered tables, with a sign noting 2-3 topics which they are considered “experts.” There is no time limit per table, so attendees may sit down at one table for the full 45 minutes, or take the opportunity to visit several experts. This is set up to be an open discussion session, and an opportunity for conference attendees to ask their burning questions.
“Rapid Fire” Workshops: This session Monday morning is a new twist on the old roundtable format, where attendees loved the ability to get a lot of information in a short period of time, but often felt noise was an issue. We’ve taken the same time/rotation concept, but rather than have the session take place in one large room, each session will be in individual breakout rooms.
