RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - This week, the city takes on a new role as host to the 2024 National League of Cities (NCL) summer Board and Leadership Meeting.

From June 10 to June 13, Rancho Cordova welcomes more than 200 local elected officials from across the United States to share ideas and act for the community’s betterment.

The National League of Cities Summer Board Conference isn’t just another gathering. It’s a crucial platform where mayors, vice-mayors, council members, and city leaders come together to talk about what’s important for their communities. Everything from climate change to tech advancements, infrastructure needs and emergency services, will be on the table.

So why Rancho Cordova?

The answer lies in the city’s own leadership. Mayor David M. Sander, Ph.D,  holds the prestigious title of National League of Cities president this year. His stewardship, alongside the city’s commitment to progress and inclusivity, makes Rancho Cordova the natural choice for this years’ gathering.

Preparation is key and Rancho Cordova is ready. Attendees will find themselves greeted with local hospitality, from the comfortable accommodation of Rancho Cordova's hotels to the flavors of its diverse culinary scene.  

Two of National League of Cities’ six constituency groups, The National League of Cities Local Indigenous Leaders and the Hispanic Elected Local Officials will convene during the event, fostering important discussions of inclusivity and diversity.  

Local Indigenous Leaders serves as a platform, facilitating meaningful connections among Indigenous local officials to address issues impacting Indigenous and Tribal communities. The upcoming meeting presents an opportunity for attendees to tackle present day challenges facing these communities. Together, they will discuss strategies for expanding membership, enhancing outreach efforts, and prioritizing key policy objectives for 2024, amplifying awareness, education, and advocacy on matters related to Murdered and Missing Indigenous Persons.

Hispanic Elected Local Officials plays a vital role in connecting Hispanic and Latino/local officials, promoting the sharing of best practices and advocating for policies that benefit their communities. This year, the group aims to focus on immigration issues at the local level, workforce development and the disproportionate impacts of public safety, the opioid crisis and mental health on Latino communities. The conference offers attendees an opportunity to connect with peers nationwide, including officials and municipal staff.

On June 10, the Hispanic Elected Local Officials and the Local Indigenous Leaders will convene, alongside the State League Steering Committee. June 11 brings additional meetings, including gatherings of Local Indigenous Leaders and the Hispanic Elected Local Officials, along with the Presidential Election Task Force Meeting. June 12 kicks off with the Board of Directors meetings, followed by mobile workshops and committee meetings covering various topics. The day ends with an off-site Joint Event. June 13 wraps up the event with more committee meetings covering topics such as transportation, public safety, finance, human development, information technology, community and economic development, and energy and environment.
