CSCDA has long has been a sponsor of the annual Local Governance Summer Institute (LGSI) seminar at Stanford University. LGSI is designed to present the best blend of the academic and the practitioner worlds to local government professionals who want to expand their outlook and skill set in this continually evolving field.

Each year, the program selects a set of salient and pressing challenges for local government and brings together Stanford, industry, and local governance experts to help participants innovate appropriate solutions for their communities. For the 2022 program, these will include the challenges of COVID-19 for local governments, equity and inclusiveness, navigating community advocacy group engagement, public safety reform, adaptive planning for wildfires and wildfire smoke impacts, and public housing and homelessness.
