Spotted: Day Two of the 2014 LMC Annual Conference—Thursday, June 19

Today saw the most jam-packed day of the conference! It began with opening keynote speaker Peter Kageyama, rolled on into the annual awards luncheon and annual meeting, continued with a whole host of concurrent sessions, and ended with the exhibit hall event.

Here are some photos from Day Two:

A packed house of conference attendees awaited the keynote speaker this morning.


Before the keynote, attendees had a chance to share what they love most
about their cities on a bulletin board in the lobby.

Opening keynote speaker Peter Kageyama gave examples of unique projects that have helped residents
connect to their cities—from poetry stamped into sidewalks in St. Paul to a giant blue bear statue peering
into the Denver Convention Center to an intricate group lip sync to “American Pie” in Grand Rapids, MI.


Conference attendees had a chance to connect with Peter during the book signing held after his speech.


Dave Osberg, city administrator for Eagan, was elected as the new president of the LMC Board of Directors for 2014-15.


More than 100 vendors had booths at this year's exhibit hall event.


Conference attendees and vendors networked and connected over ways
to help cities become stronger and achieve their goals.

Another successful day at the conference—and we’re not done yet!

Stay tuned for scenes from our final day in St. Cloud.
