Be proud of your local government and the community you live in by bringing one or two items, photos, or pieces of memorabilia that represents your community and have them displayed in a pop-up museum at the Heritage Showcase during LGMA’s Annual Conference and 100th Anniversary.  Highlight what is special about where you live and the changes or innovations that have taken place in your community over the last 100 years. Tables will be sorted by LGMA Chapter Regions and together we can celebrate 100 years of learning, leadership, and growth.
