Special Districts Summit - Central 2020

Sep 17, 2020


National Special Districts Summits

Navigating the Uncertainty of 2020 and Preparing for What’s Next

2020 has been a year of uncertainty and rapid change as special districts around the country continue to respond to a global pandemic. Districts quickly shifted employees to remote work and adapted to managing virtual workforces. They deployed new online technologies and services to maintain vital operations and keep programs up and running. Now, as special districts prepare for what comes next, there is much we can learn from the initial pandemic response. Join us for an interactive virtual summit where we’ll breakdown how things have changed, share lessons from the field, and explore tools and tactics special district leaders – from airports, utilities, transportation, parks, ports, libraries, fire, housing and more – can use to keep up with evolving demands.


What They Are Saying

"…the Special Districts program has provided the unique opportunity for me to collaborate with a diverse set of government professionals – all faced with the challenge of solving their community's needs – by leveraging technological resources."
     Clay Campbell, Administrative Supervisor, Downers Grove Sanitary District

"It’s an opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded individuals that face the challenges we do. It might be a city, it might be a village, it might be a water district, but at the end of the day… the key top 10 issues that we face - they’re all the same. That’s what this program provides: validation about what we’re seeing – and that we’re not alone."
     Omar Sandoval, Director of Information Technology, Naperville Park District


 Professional Development

For those attendees who maintain a professional certification, certificates of attendance will be provided.
