It’s time for the LPIN to Level Up!
The LPIN 2021 convention will be held March 26th – 28th in Fishers, IN at the Forum Event Center. The focus of this year’s convention will be attendee experience, education, and training.
Tentative Schedule: (subject to change)
Friday Night: Hyatt House Fishers
Friday Night will feature a panel discussion / Q&A about municipal budgeting. TIF Financing, Reverting Funds, Non-Reverting Funds, what money can be spent on what from which funds. This is critical information for anyone planning to run for office or wants to keep tabs on what their local governments are up to. This event will be open to non-members through a separate ticketing system.
Following that panel discussion, we intend to have a Q&A panel with current LPIN leadership and anyone running for leadership positions.
Saturday Morning Training: Forum Event Center
Starting at 8 am we will be offering training classes. There will be 4 separate areas of training tailored to multiple skill levels. Classes will last approximately an hour giving attendees the opportunity to attend up to 3 separate classes before breaking for lunch.
Lunch will not be provided this year, but there are many options for dining that are in very close proximity to the venue and the hotel. We highly recommend attendees use this time for break-out sessions and networking, like district and county meetings for example.
