Research Symposiums


Research Symposiums

The Center for Municipal Research holds two research symposiums per year, one in conjunction with the League's annual conference in August and one in conjunction with the legislative conference in November. 

These symposiums bring together public administrators, elected officials and the academic community. Each symposium focuses on specific local government issues, and how research, statistics and trends can be used in the local government setting.

The Fall 2019 Research Symposium on Water Quality was held on November 13 in Orlando. Presentations are available below.
