SEE CONFERENCE PAGE 15 City & Town officials gather in Glendale for annual conference By Shanana Rain Golden-Bear Quartzsite, AZ- More than 1,400 city and town offi - cials, legislators, business leaders, youth councilmem- bers and guests from across the state gathered in Glen- dale for the League of Arizona Cities and Towns Annual Conference, held August 29 – September 2 at the Re- naissance Hotel in Glendale, AZ. Among the offi cials in attendance were Quartzsite Mayor Norm Simpson, Town Manager Jim Fergu- son, Council Members Starr BearCat, Lynda Gold- berg and Karey Amon. The conference is held annually in late summer and provides a unique opportunity for local offi cials to gather together to attend training sessions designed to aid in more effective and effi cient management of Arizona's municipalities, to hear from state and leg- islative offi cials, as well as share common concerns and ideas for problem solving. Mayor Simpson told Desert Messenger News, "The benefi ts of attending the conference includes training in areas of interest to elected municipal of- fi cials such as establishing networking, roundtable discussions with other municipalities, formal pre- sentations by established leaders in their areas of expertise, and updates on legislation affecting mu- nicipalities. Simpson added, "As a member of the League of Arizona Cities and Towns, the Town of Quartzsite again sent much of the current council and manage- ment staff to the conference.
