Full Agenda Now Available: 2012 Inner City Economic Summit
Cities across the country are creating innovative models and collaborative partnerships to lay the groundwork for sustainable economic development.
However, deliberate alignment and coordination of efforts will be required to fully amplify job creation and support growing businesses in our inner cities. By identifying industry strengths and then connecting capital, land use and business development strategies to these, city leaders can have a greater impact on their communities.
During the 2012 Inner City Economic Summit, city, civic and business leaders will gather to share practices that are proving durable in this fiscal climate; an engaging agenda will extend on-the-ground efforts and identify adaptable solutions.
