Follow-up Q&A Session

You’ll learn:

  • How to leverage forces forged in the pandemic—greater connectedness and a focus on localism—as accelerants to create long-term vibrancy

  • Thoughtful strategies for investing stimulus dollars

  • Why your approach should center on four key foundational areas: placemaking, economic development, civic education, and early learning

  • What leaders are doing right now to set themselves up for success on the other side

  • High-impact ways to support your small business community as they adapt to the “future normal”

  • The power of messaging: how to engage citizens; rally your community; create buy-in for smart, incremental growth; and create a culture that is resilient

Please join us for some much-needed hope…and the strategies and tactics to turn it into action!
