I had the pleasure of spending yesterday afternoon and this morning in lovely St. Cloud, Minnesota at the League of Minnesota Cities 2010 Annual Conference and Marketplace. Marylee and I had a wonderful time talking to various City Managers, City Administrators, Mayors and City Council members about what is happening in their cities and how they are addressing the economic challenges their cities are facing. My firm’s mission is to assist public and private sector employers with their workplace issues during these challenging times.

The conference was very well organized with lots of valuable sessions for attendees on topics including: LGA cuts, cost cutting measures, city budgets, and dealing with unions to name just a few. We are already looking forward to next year’s conference in Rochester.
