CONNECT WITH A NETWORK OF PEOPLE WHO MAKE PLACES BETTER
Attend the only national peer-learning event for placemakers – leaders like you who improve lives and strengthen places. Join people from different regions, cultures, and national networks as they share what's working to advance prosperity and strengthen places for the people who live and work there. You'll expand your network of placemakers who are just a phone call, email, text or tweet away.
