The theme of GMA's 2020 Annual Convention was “Cities United: Rising with Resilience,” and took place from Monday, June 29-Thursday, July 2. GMA staff worked diligently to bring members a meaningful virtual convention that allowed them to view and participate in informative workshop sessions, hear from inspiring keynote speakers, experience a virtual exhibitor hall, complete with relevant and innovative product and service offerings. 

In addition, internationally acclaimed leadership expert John C. Maxwell served as the keynote speaker for the opening general session. During the opening general session, Maxwell shared lessons he covers in his book, “Leadershift: 11 Essential Changes Every Leader Must Embrace.” Maxwell, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, coach and speaker, has sold 30 million books. He has been called the #1 leader in business by the American Management Association and the world’s most influential leadership expert by Inc. His organizations—The John Maxwell Company, The John Maxwell Team, EQUIP, and the John Maxwell Leadership Foundation—have trained millions of leaders from every nation. Visit for more information.
