The second annual ICMA video contest offered two members the opportunity to attend a conference who had never attended one before. We had the chance to catch up with Sam Feldman, the winner of this year’s conference, and he offered his thoughts:
“The opportunity to attend this conference was just unbelievable. In addition to being in the always-active international city of Montreal, the conference itself has been so valuable to my continuing education and inspiration. I have met some current, former, and aspiring managers, and the sessions have supplied me a view of the various gears of the machine of local government. In particular, the opening keynote by John Hope Bryant was inspiring, and the session on the whys and why-nots of regional consolidation was fascinating, coming from the megapolitan Phoenix region. Thank you, ICMA, for this wonderful opportunity. I hope to see you again in San Jose next year!”
