Drawing attention to trends and new research is an important part of SLGE at ICMA-RC’s mission. To that end, SLGE at ICMA-RC collaborates with media outlets and related organizations to promote its research and resources. The Center’s research has been covered by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, Axios, CNBC, Bloomberg News, Fox Business, Governing, Politico, and many other outlets. State legislators and agencies, local governments, and federal and congressional entities rely on and cite that research regularly.

SLGE at ICMA-RC also holds events and webinars to focus on timely issues, enabling state and local governments and other public service organizations to build capacity to attract and retain the talent they need to operate in an increasingly complex world.
