ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany is one of a handful of cities being highlighted at this year's International City and County Management Association Conference.

The association has about 9,000 members and selected a few places to show a video about their city.

City leaders say the video gives them a chance to talk about some of the things Albany has done well and what the future holds.

The video focuses on sites like the Riverquarium and the Civil Rights Museum.

"It's my understanding that only about eight were made this year, so we're one of only a handful of communities who got the chance to show off to the managers in Richmond and of course now we want to show it off to the community," said Wes Smith, Assistant City Manager.
