Join the Florida League of Cities Center for Municipal Research & Innovation (CMRI) on Wednesday, August 15 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood for the 7th annual CMRI summer research symposium. New technologies are rapidly replacing established methods of doing things in our cities. Innovations such as autonomous vehicles, broadband WiFi, and the sharing economy are all impacting the way residents and visitors interact with city services. Join us as we discuss local and nationwide trends, present options and tools cities can use to work with disruptive technology companies, and explore the impacts – both positive and negative – these technologies are having on our communities. This free half-day symposium is designed to assist city managers, innovation officers, municipal attorneys and elected leaders in better understanding the impacts disruptive technologies have on municipal government. Detailed workshop information and registration forms are available on the League’s website . The symposium is a free event for League members and research partners, but pre-registration is required. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. For more information on the symposium, contact FLC Research Analyst Liane Schrader or 850-222-9684.
