Why should we do this
Why should we do this?

Our vision is to create a place where government leaders who are committed to achieving cost savings and better results can learn from and support one another.

By participating, local governments can:

  • Learn new ways to deliver better results and give citizens a better return on their tax dollars.

  • Receive information and technical assistance from performance experts at no cost to their organization.

  • Share ideas, challenges, and resources with other government leaders who face similar challenges.
