From Friday, June 8th through Monday, June 11, 2018, more than 250 of the nation’s mayors will meet in Boston for the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) Annual Meeting.
Under the leadership of USCM President Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin and host Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, mayors will discuss a wide variety of priorities that contribute to the overall health of America’s cities, as well as consider and adopt the policy resolutions that guide the advocacy agenda of the organization.
With more than 85 percent of Americans living in U.S. metropolitan areas, mayors are on the frontlines of today’s challenges and have consistently called on Washington to draw on mayoral expertise. During the Meeting, mayors from both sides of the aisle, from cities rural, urban and suburban, will hold sessions on a range of issues, including infrastructure, cybersecurity, school safety, immigration, automation and the economic future of cities.
