NLC Summit to Focus on Improving Lives of Children, Youth, Families


Kyle, John E., Nation's Cities Weekly


The nation's largest gathering of municipal officials who are working to improve the lives of children, youth and families in their cities and towns will begin on September 25 in San Antonio, Texas.

More than 300 mayors, city councilmembers, municipal staff and representatives of local school and community partners will share in networking, learning and leading at NLC's 2005 National Summit on Your City's Families. The summit is being planned by NLC's Institute for Youth, Education, and Families (YEF Institute) in collaboration with the city of San Antonio and the Texas Municipal League.

General Sessions to Focus on Leading

Leadership for children and families will be the focus of the opening keynote address by Carol Bellamy, president and CEO of World Learning. World Learning is a private, non-profit organization that promotes international and intercultural understanding, democracy, social justice and economic development through training, education and field projects in over 100 countries.

Bellamy recently completed ten years as executive director of UNICEF (the United Nations Children's Fund). She previously served as director of the Peace Corps and was the first woman to be elected president of the New York City Council.

A second general session will showcase George Haddow--a partner with Bullock & Haddow, a disaster management consulting firm. His presentation about municipal preparedness, risk prevention and crisis management is timely in these weeks immediately following Hurricane Katrina. Joining Haddow on a panel following his remarks will be local government experts in services to children and families.

Haddow also serves on the faculty of the Institute for Crisis, Disaster and Risk Management at George Washington University. Previously, he was deputy chief of staff to then-FEMA director James Lee Witt.

On Wednesday, Mayor Ron Gonzales of San Jose, Calif., and Mayor Bill Purcell of Nashville, Tenn.,--current and past chair, respectively, of NLC's Council on Youth, Education, and Families (YEF Council)--will kick off the closing general session with a panel discussion on effective local leadership in strengthening families and improving outcomes for children and youth.

Then, the session will feature NLC's first-ever use of audience response technology.
