From April 9 to 10, 2014 the African Mayors & Legislators Summit will hold at the Hilton Atlanta Downtown, 255 Courtland Street NE, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This event is a platform for networking and strategic development for local government councils of Africa.
In Africa, the Local Government is a form of public administration which exists as the lowest tier of administration within a given state. Local governments generally act within powers delegated to them by legislation or directives of the higher level of government. The prevailing challenge is the development of capacity to meet the needs of public service and governance. There is a necessity for a medium to strengthen grass-roots leadership; to promote the ventures of the local government councils and to facilitate the exchange of good practice in the structures and services of the third-tier level of government. This is the goal of this conference.
The theme of the conference is: Legislation on Local Government Administration.
Program of Events
a) Workshop: Conference room meeting to generate plans, analyses and designs to support organizational efforts of the local government councils.
b) Visitation: Executive tour of the City of Atlanta.
c) Networking: Interactions with political and business leaders.
