Spotted: Day Two of the 2015 LMC Annual Conference—Thursday, June 25

Thursday was another busy and information-filled day at the conference! It began with an energizing presentation by opening keynote speaker Steve Gross, continued on into the annual awards luncheon and some special recognition for Jim Miller, rolled into a whole host of concurrent sessions, and then ended with a bang at the exhibit hall event.

Here are some photos from Day Two:


Steve Grossfounder and Chief Playmaker at the Life is Good Foundationkicked off Thursday
with plenty of positivity as he spoke about the importance of internal control, active engagement,
social connection, and the joyfulness play provides in living a fulfilled life.



Ed Belland, public safety director of Medina, received the 2015 Leadership Award, recognizing
his ethical management and dedication to public safety. He is pictured here with Judy Johnson,
councilmember/deputy mayor of Plymouth who received the C.C. Ludwig Award recognizing
her effective, respectful service and dedication.


Outgoing Executive Director Jim Miller was feted for his 22 years of service to the League
during this year's Annual Meeting. He was presented with this scrumptious cake and learned
that, beginning in 2016, the Leadership Award will be renamed the James F. Miller Award.


Jim Miller and incoming Executive Director Dave Unmacht spent some time
at the League's booths in the exhibit hall saying hello to city officials.


One more day to go—check back Friday evening for scenes from our last day in Duluth!
