This year we’re bringing in high-energy, passionate presenters to create a fast-paced, intense and exciting experience based around the Center for 21st Century Communities (21c3) eight assets: physical design & walkability; green initiatives; cultural economic development; entrepreneurship; multiculturalism; messaging & technology; transit; and education. We’ll combine the best that national experts offer with our own local success stories from around the state to deliver dynamic, to-the-point presentations followed by break-out discussions.
