Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams have been elected as U.S. Conference of Mayors New USCM Advisory Board Members at the organization’s 87th annual meeting this week in Honolulu.

Rochester Hills, Minnisota, Mayor Bryan Barnett became the 77th President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) in a gavel-passing ceremony on July 2, accepting the honor from outgoing USCM President Mayor Steve Benjamin of Columbia, South Carolina, at the meeting.

As part of the ceremony, Mayor Barnett delivered a keynote speech announcing his key priorities, which will focus on three central themes—Infrastructure, Innovation and Inclusion.
