Each April, Utah’s county government officials from all 29 counties, representing nine different affiliate organizations, their staff, and other key local and statewide government officials gather to discuss legislative issues, become educated on policy changes and updates, collaborate on issues, and share best practices. Affiliate organizations include:
- Commissioners/Council Members
- HR/Personnel Directors
- IT/IS & GIS Officers
The Management Conference is smaller than the Annual Convention in November as not as the Attorneys and Sheriffs don’t always meet in April. However, those groups invited to participate usually include 75% of the elected body of individuals from all 29 counties. This also includes many of their deputies and administrative staff. Format for the three-day event includes traditional breaks, general sessions, break-out sessions, socials, and other general gatherings (such as breakfasts and lunches).
NEW IN 2018: This year’s Management Conference will be joined with the Utah League of Cities and Towns Mid-Year Conference. The UAC event will be April 24-26 at the Dixie Center in St. George. The League will overlap UAC in some morning joint sessions and lunch on the 26th. Then UAC will adjourn and the League will continue through the 27th.
