Concurrent Session: Problem Solving 101 with LAS
Sunday, 1:00 – 2:15pm
 
Municipalities are responsible for the overall well-being of their communities.  They face many problems on a daily basis – competing demands, limited staff capacity, and not enough money to go around.  This session explores common issues and the tools to solve them, such as group procurement, administrative services, turn-key programs, and expert investing.
