Last Chance to Register for Regional Exchange: Cincinnati

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership invites area leaders in business, education and community service to attend Regional Exchange: Cincinnati. The exchange is a leadership learning event where participants will spend two and a half days in Cincinnati, June 5 - 7, 2013. Registration for the trip ends Friday, May 3, 2013.

While in Cincinnati, participants will learn from the experiences and best practices of organizations in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region. Representatives from Agenda 360, the Strive Network, Vision 2015 and other organizations will demonstrate how they are working collaboratively to make Cincinnati a better place to live, work and play.

During the trip, participants will break out into three groups around 21st Century Talent, Entrepreneurship and Quality of Life. These focused breakouts will allow for more in-depth conversations and idea exchange around the three topics.

Several Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky leaders will take part in the exchange. Speakers will include Kathy Merchant, President/CEO of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation; David Ginsburgh, President/CEO of Downtown Cincinnati, Inc.; and Rob Reifsnyder, President of the United Way of Greater Cincinnati.

"This trip will provide invaluable insights into how the Collective Impact model has been used in Cincinnati to achieve economic growth in the areas of 21st Century Talent, Quality of Life and Entrepreneurship," said Katy Silliman, vice president of regional initiatives for the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership. "We believe Northeast Indiana is primed and ready for this type of model to be applied to our efforts to grow the economy of Northeast Indiana."

The cost to participate is $950 per person. (This cost is all inclusive and includes transportation, lodging, food, tickets to the Reds game, etc.)

Space is limited! Applications must be received by May 3. The registration packet and the trip agenda can be downloaded from the Vision 2020 website. For additional information, contact Erica Schweyer, Vision 2020 Manager at the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, at 260.469.3474 or
