2017 Municipal Innovators Community Conference



It’s how we serve the public better.
It’s how we meet citizen expectations.
It’s how we build smart, resilient cities.
It’s how we attract the best and the brightest.

At MiC2017 we will:

  • Celebrate great municipal work.
  • Learn from inspiring, experienced, knowledgeable speakers.
  • Connect with a community of dedicated and creative public servants.


Some of what you’ll see:


Conference sponsor Public Sector Digest has added a pre-conference workshop on the afternoon of September 26th from 1pm to 4pm.

In advance of the 2017 MIC Conference, the Public Sector Digest will host five of its most innovative editorial contributors for an impact-oriented workshop.
Municipal innovators will present case studies via rapid-fire “TED talks”, followed by break-out sessions where registrants will work closely with presenters and PSD’s policy team to discuss the application of concepts to their respective communities. Following the workshop, PSD’s policy team will draft a synopsis of the discussion for participants, including actionable insights and suggested resources for further learning.
