Annual meeting highlights from the Twitter feed and app

This year’s Annual Meeting saw a jump in the use of the meeting app and Twitter as a way to keep participants updated and informed during the meeting.

Take a look below at a few of these social media highlights. Handouts and other collateral material from the meeting are here.

In celebration of the Association's 85th anniversary of service to the state's cities and towns, every municipal registrant received a complimentary copy of the book. Order one here.

Past presidents were honored for their service to the Association at a dinner on Thursday night. Former Spartanburg Mayor John Behr's service went back the furthest. He was president of the Association in 1976 and traveled from his home in Florida for the event.

Keynote speaker Rebecca Ryan wowed the 600+ registrants with insight and advice on preparing for the future beyond just 3 - 5 year strategic plans.
The Association's legislative team briefed participants on bills that passed this session. Tiger Wells explained in detail about new FOIA requirements resulting from legislation and a court case. Learn more about these here.

All the tweets from the meeting can be found here. For anyone attending the meeting, a quick survey is here.
