RENO, Nev. (December 16, 2021) – Visit Reno Tahoe announced today that the 80th International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) Annual Conference will be held in Northern Nevada, May 17-20, 2026.

“It is a tremendous honor to welcome the International Institute of Municipal Clerks back to Reno Tahoe,” said Visit Reno Tahoe President and CEO Charles Harris. “It’s inspiring for our community to see the return of long-term, future bookings, and for the travel industry to play a part in the reintroduction of government-related, association meetings and events.”

More than 1,000 attendees and family members, from across the country and beyond, will converge on Reno Tahoe for the premier annual educational conference for municipal professionals. The IIMC Annual Conference is comprised of diversified programming, focused on a wide range of topics that include leadership, communication, digital adaptability, organizational development, collaboration, diversity and inclusion, records management, budget/finance, and more.

“The IIMC Board of Directors selected Reno for its 2026 80th anniversary conference for the conducive cost of doing business and for its great access to attractions and activities that enhance the conference experience for our attendees and their guests. As a nonprofit, IIMC relies on successful conferences as its only other form of generating revenue outside of membership dues. It’s imperative that we select cities that provide us with the best chance of success. And, Reno ensures us of that success,” said IIMC Executive Director Chris Shalby.

Attracting association events to any destination requires community support, time and planning. Bringing this group of public servants to Northern Nevada was made possible by the combined efforts of local tourism professionals and public officials, such as City of Sparks City Clerk Lisa Hunderman and City of Reno City Clerk Mikki Huntsman, who represent their communities as active members of IIMC Region VIII. The IIMC Annual Conference was last held in Reno Tahoe in 2010. The event is expected to generate an estimated economic impact of nearly $4.1 million.
