Items of Interest to Municipalities

During the 2015 Midwinter Conference, Joe Hampton was honored for his many years of service to the city of Lincoln, the state of Nebraska and the League of Nebraska Municipalities. In honor of his decades of dedication and servant leadership, the League Executive Board voted unanimously that the League Conference Room would be named the "Joe Hampton Conference Room," with a plaque placed on the double doors into the conference room. As another expression of the League's appreciation, Joe Hampton was presented with the first "Joe Hampton League Legacy Award for Outstanding Servant Leadership."
