CONFERENCE RECEPTION

Venue: Georgia Tech Alumni House | 190 North Ave | Atlanta, GA 30354

The conference is being hosted by the Young Leaders but is open to the general public.

The conference aims to ignite a vision for Atlanta as a "global city" by addressing the different facets of a global city, including economic identity, connectivity to global markets, culture, sustainability, and long-term growth potential. We anticipate that the conference will generate content for a Vision letter to be presented to the Metro Atlanta Export Plan, the City of Atlanta, and state and regional government officials.

If you're not a Council member yet, this is perfect time to join! You can become a member AND attend the conference for $100 - click here to join today.
