Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Lead Your City Summit, November 18th: Greensboro, NC

I have been remiss in not writing about various initiatives in Greensboro, NC, which I was introduced to earlier in the year. I will do so sometime over the next few weeks.

Suffice it to say that the city is fortunate to still have an active industrial sector, a number of higher education institutions, an innovative culture more generally, and innovative foundations committed to investing in the city.

I guess I must have signed up for email from Action Greensboro, the city improvement initiative, and I got a notice about the city's annual synerG Lead Your City Summit, focused on young professionals, and sponsored by synerG, the city's young professionals organization, and Entrepreneur Connection, a business unit of the Greensboro Partnership.

According to the email:
The half day summit will include keynote speaker Malina Jeffers with Mosaic City, "What I'd like to see in Greensboro" brainstorm, using LinkedIn effectively, networking tips and tricks and other community and career development sessions. The cost for the summit is $30 and includes lunch, all sessions, drinks at the networking event and a professional headshot. 
All attendees will also be entered into a drawing to win a custom designed resume from Hue & Tone Creative (a $275 value).
