(BLOOMINGTON) - Mayor-elect John Hamilton will join mayors-elect from Indiana, and states across the country at Harvard Institute of Politics' (IOP) upcoming Seminar on Transition and Leadership for Newly Elected Mayors in early December.

Every two years, the IOP hosts the country's preeminent educational and preparatory program for new U.S. mayors.

Newly elected mayors from large cities will gather December 8 - 1 for the IOP's conference on exercising leadership in City Hall and addressing legislative and policy challenges. The program, co-sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, has hosted hundreds of current and former mayors since its inception in 1975. The Institute primarily invites newly-elected mayors from cities with populations over 75,000.

"I'm pleased to join fellow Hoosier Mayors-elect Joe Hogsett of Indianapolis, Peter Buttegieg of South Bend, and Karen Freeman Wilson of Gary in this great learning opportunity. This seminar, targeted specifically to the needs and interests of incoming mayors, will introduce me to some of the best tools and strategies to maximize my service to the citizens of Bloomington. I'm looking forward to the chance to gain critical guidance from experts, practitioners and each other."

The 21st biennial Seminar on Transition and Leadership for Newly Elected Mayors features a diverse group of policy and political experts. The seminar will be held at the John F. Kennedy School of Government. The newly elected U.S. mayors will participate in a variety of sessions led by current and former U.S. mayors, academics, policy analysts and practitioners.

Topics will include Move: Putting America's Infrastructure Back in the Lead, Policing and Public Safety, Communicating in Real-time During a Crisis as well as workshops on transitioning from the campaign to City Hall, finance and administration, economic development and competitiveness, the tech and data-driven city and attracting the Millennial generation to cities.

The Seminar on Transition and Leadership for Newly Elected Mayors is provided to all participants at no cost to them or their communities.
