The ITGA 2023 Conference Offers a Variety of Educational Sessions and Multiple Networking Opportunities!
The annual ITGA conference will be June 7-9, a time to step away from the duties and the daily grind, to stroll outside between conference sessions, to invest in your career and in yourself where hundreds of town-gown professionals gather, from city officials and municipal managers, to community relations, public safety and student affairs experts in higher education. Spring is a time of fresh starts. Let the ITGA conference be yours.
The Certificate in Town Gown Relations Level II
Reframing and Aligning Equity Efforts in Town Gown Communities
This pre-conference program will illuminate what is commonly taken for granted when striving for equitable outcomes and systems-level change. Participants will deepen their understanding of DEIJ with respect to vision and values that move beyond an emphasis on “outputs” towards equity and liberation that benefits all marginalized groups. Space is filing up quickly. Register today!
