Why Attend the ITGA Conference?
"The ITGA conference was extremely beneficial in helping me learn more about what others were doing to foster exceptional town-and-gown relationships. As a first-time conference attendee, and as someone new to city management in a college town, I found the information presented and the people at the conference to be professional and informative. I certainly plan to attend future conferences and became more interested in the offerings of the association as a result of my positive experience."

Justin Longino, Town Manager, Town of Boiling Springs, North Carolina
