Driven to Accela-rate governments at City Summit



Accela is a proud supporter of the National League of Cities and its annual conference, City Summit. At this year’s conference in Charlotte, NC, held November 15-18, Accela is excited to again connect with civic leaders from across the country. We’re sending an all-star “Pit Crew” of Accela Gov’t Tech experts and we’ve got a little “High Speed” fun planned as well!

We’re looking forward to sharing the latest government technology solutions designed to drive productivity and citizen engagement. Now more than ever, the old methods of providing government services via paper-based processes and waiting in queues aren’t sustainable. Emerging regulatory issues, such as short-term rental and marijuana regulation, are top of mind for many city leaders and placing new burdens on city departments. At Accela, we take great pride in working alongside our customers to meet these new challenges, and we love coming to NLC’s City Summit to share, and to learn.

Serious business + high speed fun

We’re also planning to have a little fun, and seeing that Charlotte is home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, we decided to bring the “Speed” right into the Accela booth! In the spirit of Accela-rating cities to implement solutions that drive results, Accela’s booth this year will feature a real NASCAR race car equipped with a race simulator to test just how fast drivers can go! The racer with the fastest time will win two tickets to a NASCAR event of their choice. Do I see a President Matt Zone versus Exec. Dir. Clarence Anthony showdown in our future? You bet I do! If you are at the conference, you won’t want to miss out and we’ll be sure to post some pictures from the event on social media. See you in Charlotte!
