Join Us In San Antonio For The ICMA Annual Meeting

SolSmart will be at the 103rd International City/County Management Association (ICMA) Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas from October 22-25. As a local government engaged in the SolSmart program to make it faster, easier, and cheaper to go solar, we hope you can join us! We’ll be honoring and recognizing the cities and counties that were designated SolSmart Gold, Silver, or Bronze, as well as those that are now on the path to designation.

This conference will be an opportunity to meet the SolSmart team and network with other government leaders taking steps to go solar. We hope you will join us at the conference for two engaging events. Register now.

The ICMA Annual Conference offers local government managers and staff an abundance of educational, information-sharing, and networking tools to help you manage your community in today’s complex environment.
