CMSM National Post-Assembly 2023
InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza | August 3, 2023

What models are available for managing communal commitments? How have communities engaged expertise, whether from outside their community or from their charismatic family, in the governance and administration of their community? In addition to these more general questions, what are some of the best practices and key issues that arise from the merger of jurisdictions? Join a wide-ranging panel of leaders and experts as we engage in a half-day discussion about these issues.
