MUNICIPAL DEVELOPMENT

The fundamental goals of the World Conference of Mayors (WCM) are: trust, trade, tourism, technology, treasury, training and twin city programs and services between mayors, cities and other local public officials and jurisdiction around the world. The primary functions of the WCOM are to collaborate, stimulate, and support positive and constructive relations between mayors and other local public officials internationally, based on interlocking interest and concerns.

Through a network of international municipal associations, mayors and units of local governments, the WCM plans, designs, and manages an international intergovernmental communications system. Through this system, the WCM emphasis is placed on establishing and strengthening intergovernmental frameworks and capacity building – providing strategic planning, technical assistance, and organizational and human development. The system’s focus is identification, then gathering and dissemination of current and relevant data and information which affords local public officials – decision makers – better working tools for efficient and effective planning and policy making, especially regarding the delivery of needed constituent services.

In partnership with the National Policy Alliance (NPA), National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials (NBC-LEO), Blacks in Government (BIG), National Association of Black County Officials (NABCO), National Conference of Black Mayors (NCBM), National Association of Black State Legislatures (NABSL), African Methodist Church (AME), Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) and National Baptist Convention (NBC). This Forum will cover four themes:

Infrastructure & Power

Security & Emergency Recovery

This panel will bring together experts and government officials to discuss the full spectrum of a disaster and the impact on a community or an organization by distilling down the operational needs for planning, response and recovery.
