Spotted: Around the 2016 LMC Annual Conference—Friday, June 17

Starting the day right! Fitness in the Parks Trainer Gregory Dodd
talked about fitness during an early morning walk along the Mississippi.

Another beautiful morning greeted everyone Friday in St. Paul!

What would you do if you were a city employee who was asked why park grass was green durin
g a drought? Julie Anderson, recreation supervisor at the City of Eagan, took part in Ordway President
and CEO Jamie Grant’s exercise that showed how leadership occurs at all levels of an organization.

Highly-visible confrontations between law enforcement and communities
of color are all too common, and overcoming barriers to creating better outcomes
for everyone can seem daunting. A panel of law enforcement officers and representatives
from the League, the City of St. Paul, and a diversity consultant discussed
how respect and trust can be fostered in all communities.

Are you writing new music, or playing notes that have already been played?
Violinist and inspirational speaker Kai Kight shared his experiences on how it’s easy
to get caught up trying to follow the “right formula,” but it’s important to keep in mind
that all the details we tend to focus on are just one vehicle we take on the road to
our greater goal: building our communities. In addition to speaking and sharing
inspirational stories, Kai also performed some of his own original compositions.

And that’s a wrap! Thank you to all attendees, presenters, and 
League and Alliance staff for a great 2016 Annual Conference!
