From the Desk of Jeff Schott,
The 2017 Iowa Municipal Management Institute (IMMI) is scheduled for March 15 – 17, 2017, at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Iowa City. The program is almost finalized and we believe it will provide you an excellent opportunity for professional development as well as networking with your colleagues. Information regarding conference registration, hotel reservations and the final program will be sent out in mid-January.
Hope to see you there!
Best wishes for a joyous holiday season!
