About the Project

Since its founding in 2015, the goal of Partners in Governance has been to explore important current events in the context of American Federalism and to address the challenges facing all levels of government in today’s political, social, and technological environment.

The Partners bring a wide array of expertise to this discussion and include: the Missouri Municipal League, the Institute of Public Policy at the University of Missouri, the Missouri Association of Counties, the Missouri School Boards' Association and FOCUS-St. Louis.

  • It is a one-day conference held in April at the Reynolds Alumni Center on the University of Missouri campus.
  • It is tailored to appeal to local government and other public-sector officials and employees.
  • Its purpose is to create an environment where several areas of expertise related to the public sector can be explored and discussed to better serve those working for the public.
  • Just over 90 participants usually attend and have included – aldermen, attorneys, fire marshals, city administrators, city clerks, city council members, city managers, communications specialists, mayors, finance directors, marketing specialists, students, and professors.

It is structured around three different panels of discussion topics each with three speakers that discuss a relevant topic. A moderator guides panelists through the discussions and subsequent Q&A sessions.
