DALLAS, TX – October 12, 2015  Akshay Malhotra, Founder and CEO of Chess for Humanity, will deliver the Opening Keynote Address for the youth delegates at the National League of Cities 2015 Annual Congress of Cities Conference. The conference will be held November 5-7, 2015, in Nashville, Tennessee.

This conference is the largest gathering of local elected officials and staff in the country. The event regularly attracts over 3,000 attendees and brings together hundreds of Youth Delegates from city youth councils across the country at its annual Congress of Cities. In any given year, conference attendees represent diverse cities in almost all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and Canada.

The NLC Youth Delegate Committee polled their peers nationwide to decide among several exciting speakers to inspire and educate the Youth Delegates during the conference and invited Akshay Malhotra to speak as an Opening Keynote Speaker for the Youth Delegates during the conference. The delegates are members of city youth councils from across the country and interact with their local government officials, volunteer in their community, and have leadership development aspects of their councils.
