Transforming Local Government
"TLG wasn’t just good—it was probably the best conference I’ve ever attended. The experience gained and connections made were invaluable, and it was exhaustive without being exhausting. I absolutely plan to attend again, and I would encourage all others to do so as well."
The Transforming Local Government Conference (TLG) is different from any other conference you will attend. TLG attracts attendees from local governments that are deliberately seeking new and innovative ways to meet new challenges and provide high-quality service to the communities they serve.
TLG is recognized for its dynamic content, which encourages team building, free thinking and fosters unprecedented ideas. Participants hear presentations directly from the teams that have created some of the most innovative programs and projects in local government today.
The conference is specifically designed to promote team building and provide opportunities to share ideas. There are combinations of formal and informal activities that facilitate networking and exchanges among attendees. The scale of the conference allows local government professionals to participate in highly interactive conversations, to network directly with the presenters and to establish new and long lasting peer-to-peer contacts.
The next TLG will be held April 3-6, 2018 in enchanting Tacoma, Washington.

The Transforming Local Government Conference (TLG) is the annual gathering place for local government professionals seeking innovative ways to connect people and ideas that support their efforts to be the best communities. TLG is all about meeting up with old friends and making new friends around presentations on dynamic content that encourages freethinking and fosters unprecedented ideas, all within a relaxed and professional networking and learning environment.
We want YOU to be one of those conversation starters at the 24th Transforming Local Government Conference taking place April 3-6, 2018 in Tacoma, WA!
TLG is your platform to highlight your organization’s innovations and help others learn from your experiences. That's why we ask you to share your story with us! And the stories don’t have to be all pretty and harmonious, situations where everything fell into place by happenstance – the reality is that failure is often a part, or key, to the innovation process. Creating great cities and counties can be messy. We are a community that grows stronger by sharing stories across city, county, state and country lines. What we do expect is that the stories we share are told in an entertaining and engaging format. This is TLG after all!
The Alliance for Innovation defines Innovation as a changed process, approach, product or service that is new to you or your organization and produces better results that are valued. Innovation is most powerful when it is adopted by others.
Innovation, at its core, is about making things better in ways that are useful and valuable to people. It is about changing our services, our processes, our tools or our products to add value that matters to the people that use them. It is about discovering challenges or opportunities, designing possible enhancements, evaluating and selecting the best ones, and then using our ideas, our skills, our talents, our data, and our relationships to serve ever better.
We want to hear about your innovations – whether they are big, small, incremental or disruptive, it is about something new. It demands that we take risks and leave behind some big or small part of what WAS, in favor of what MIGHT BE.
Applications are being accepted through September 1. The selection committee is looking for your stories of success’ (and failure) on programs, projects, services, and initiatives demonstrating creative and innovative practices relative to the below categories:
TLG will attract over 600 local government professionals at every level in the organization across the US and Canada that are deliberately seeking new and innovative ways to connect people, information, and ideas that support their efforts to be the best communities to live, grow, work, play and prosper. TLG is recognized for its dynamic content that encourages freethinking and fosters unprecedented ideas, all within a relaxed and professional networking and learning environment.
