Reigniting Community Leadership: Being Bold in the Face of Change The 2012 Symposium on Small Towns

Wednesday, June 13 evening – Thursday, June 14 all day

The 2012 Symposium on Small Towns focuses on community leaders coming together to share what’s been learned from actively developing new strategies; making changes to the traditional and status quo; and a renewed commitment to help each other learn and grow.

The Symposium on June 14 will feature invited talks by distinguished speakers, a public policy panel, and presentations by community members about their work. Don’t miss the pre-Symposium activities on June 13th, including a reception with music and good food.

We encourage you to review the proposed schedule for Symposium prior to registering. This will help you as you make choices in the registration.
