Transforming Local Government
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.

We want YOU to be a conversation starter at our 2017 Transforming Local Government Conference (TLG) to be held April 18-21st in Tulsa, OK!
The Transforming Local Government Conference 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 recognized for its dynamic content that encourages freethinking and fosters unprecedented ideas, all within a relaxed and professional networking and learning environment.
TLG is your platform to highlight your organization’s innovations and help others learn from your experiences. Your story doesn’t have to be all pretty – failure is often a reality in 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. Your story does have to be told in an entertaining and engaging format. This is TLG! It’s time to get your creative juices flowing!
The application period has now ended. Be on the lookout for the announcement of our exciting lineup of case study presenters as we dive into our core focus...INNOVATION!
How does the Alliance for Innovation define Innovation? 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 others adopt it.
TLG will attract over 500 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 supports 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.
