Our region is faced with a multi-billion dollar price tag for clean water, transportation, and redevelopment.  Time has run out for band-aid approaches.  But what are the sustainable solutions we deserve and how can we turn problems into lasting opportunity?

Regional sustainability, and thus prosperity, hinge on a new way of thinking and partnering for increased collaboration between businesses and local government.  This conference comes at a critical juncture for our region.  Clean water, transportation, and innovative finance for redevelopment are top priorities as defined by emerging and established leaders in SWPA.  Attend to learn what is at stake and how you can become involved.  Learn about breakthrough ways businesses and local government can work together to solve problems regionally and unleash our full potential for sustainable development.
