McCaleb to headline Southern Municipal Conference in Richmond

For immediate release
April 10, 2003

Dr. Gary D. McCaleb, vice president of Abilene Christian University and executive director of the Center for Advancement of Community, will be the opening speaker Friday for the annual leadership meeting of the Southern Municipal Conference in Richmond, Va.

McCaleb will speak about "How does community differ from city?" and the importance of that distinction.

The Southern Municipal Conference is an organization of officers of municipal associations from 14 states from Texas to Virginia, including the Texas Municipal Association.  During his three terms as mayor of Abilene, McCaleb served as president of the Texas Municipal Association.

McCaleb also served on the Abilene City Council. His duties as mayor led him around the world, including service as the U.S. representative on the World Executive Committee of the International Union of Local Authorities and service with the National League of Cities.

McCaleb has been invited to speak at other national and international meetings, including Mauritius, Jerusalem, Prague, Sao Paulo, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Beijing, Cairo and Kiev. He has represented Abilene at international and national conferences and on a special trip to Abilene's sister city, Corinth, Greece.

A graduate of Anson High School and ACU, McCaleb received master's and Ph.D. degrees from Texas A&M University.
