AWC’s Annual Conference offers something for everyone. With its city-focused agenda, all general sessions, breakout sessions, mobile tours, networking opportunities, and social events are designed to educate and inspire. After the event, conference attendees will return to their communities with renewed ideas, insights and contacts.
The Annual Conference is for:
Half of humanity already lives in cities. An additional three billion people are projected to migrate to cities over the next few decades. Yet the concept of resilient, sustainable cities – not just conventional cities with some bolt-on bike lanes, but constructed ecosystems designed around principles of human ecology – is utterly foreign to most decision makers. Join Denis for an engaging conversation about the nature of green cities, and the opportunity for the cities of Washington State to lead the world.
More than 30 conference sessions explore the network of ideas and insights you need to master on your way to creating a strong, resilient city. Session topics include a look at your home rule powers, race equity, the sharing economy, what local government news looks like inside a blogger’s brain, working with your business community, and taking care of your infrastructure assets.
Want visibility among elected and appointed city leaders? We invite you to become an AWC Annual Conference Sponsor. Select from a robust menu of benefits, depending on the participation level that’s right for you.
