MIAMI (AP) - Miami Beach will host the 85th annual U.S. Conference of Mayors in 2017.

The Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1GGOkqM ) reported Tuesday the summer meeting brings together about 250 mayors from across the country to discuss a wide range of issues and hear from guest speakers.

The nonpartisan organization is made up of mayors representing cities with populations of 30,000 or greater.

Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine says he and the city staff worked with the Great Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau and former Miami Mayor Manny Diaz to support the cit’s bid, which was successful during last weekend’s annual meeting.

The last time the meeting came to Miami-Dade was in 2008. This is the first time Miami Beach will play host.

President Barack Obama spoke during the 2015 conference in San Francisco.
