Don Edwards, Justice & Sustainability Associates, will be the keynote speaker. His thought provoking message on civic infrastructure will leave us with much to think about concerning how we engage, involve, and take actions in our neighborhoods.

Networking Opportunities

Back by popular demand is a "mixer" at lunch. Choose a topic of interest or a local personality that you want to talk with in a small group and sit at the corresponding table. At Registration, you will choose your table.


Idea Gathering Forum

A chance during the day to share thoughts and plan shared actions with your peers. Valuable input will be generated rapidly and will be used by all of us in our work over the next year.

Thanks to MGE and the City of Madison for sponsoring the Mayor's Neighborhood Conference.
