The government of Miami-Dade County, Florida International University and the World Bank invite you to participate in the XXIV Inter-American Conference of Mayors and Local Authorities.

The Inter-American Conference of Mayors and Local Authorities annually gathers in Miami more than 600 mayors, councilors and people interested in issues of local governance in Latin America and the Caribbean. The Conference is a forum for representatives of local, regional and national governments, NGOs, multilateral agencies and all those interested in strengthening local governments to share experiences, information and practices, to discuss public policies that affect them, as well as to discuss common objectives that help to promote decentralization and strengthen local governments in the hemisphere.

In this XXIV version we will be organizing a special event on gender issues in the municipalist world. This event will be held on Friday, June 15 (registration on the 14th) and will be an alternate forum for the Inter-American Conference. We will send more information in the coming months.
