You care for your stakeholders and clients, but how well do you take care of yourself? At lunch on Friday, hear from Janine Hamner Holman and personal coach Kelly Mobeck, as they tell us Why it’s non-negotiable for us to take care of ourselves!

Join us on Wednesday, September 4th for some pre-conference activities (included with your full Conference registration) that get you out on the town, learning how the Queen City has engaged the public in its ongoing development!

Join the Art In Transit tour on Wednesday morning. In the afternoon earn about the Neighborhood Matching Grant program and how it is helping community members lead their own placemaking and improvement projects, or how Little Sugar Creek has been transformed from a neglected underground ditch to a popular greenway.

Are you an elected official, manager, staff expert or someone on whose desk the buck stops? Are you still uncertain about the value of a good public engagement strategy? Our pre-Conference activities include P2 for Decision-Makers: an introduction to the principles of effective P2; the how, why and when of engaging the public.

And there’s lots more, including workshops on Transportation, Digital Engagement and Race and Equity (details still to come). Take a look at the Schedule-at-a-Glance to get the full picture.

But don’t delay: there’s only 10 days left to register at the early-bird discount rate (deadline June 30)! (And your registration is also a ticket to the annual Core Values Awards gala, Thursday, Sept. 5, at the NASCAR Hall of Fame!) And claim your Conference discount rate at our host hotel, the Sheraton Charlotte.

Remember: if you are a student, staffer with a non-profit or new community advocate, scholarships are available! Find out more here.
