Dates are set and planning is underway for Up & Coming 2017.  Mark your calendars for March 10-11, 2017 with an optional day of tours and workshops on March 9.  The conference will be held at the Intercontinental Milwaukee, 139 East Kilbourn Ave., Milwaukee, WI.  Online reservation link is:  Up & Coming Conf - Spring 2017.

We've currently got 54 sessions on the agenda!  Some of the workshops will look familiar - Laying the Foudation I and II and some are new such as The Power of Vision and Policy Governance 101.  The previous "peer to peer" track has been renamed "Case Studies".  We've also planned an entirely new track designed to provide lots of peer learning for folks working in economically challenged urban communities entitled "Innovation".

Registration is now open! Check back often for changes and updates to the agenda and news about the conference.
