Publications & Presentations

Our Fellows and staff work hard to share what they are learning about city government and how to effectively engage talent in our communities’ most important public service work.  Our blog is only one way we share what we’re learning.  Here’s a short list of articles our Fellows and staff have published and presentations we’ve given.  Want us to speak to your organization or write an article for your publication?  Contact Michael Rocco,
