We’re gearing up for this year’s InterCity Leadership Visit. And I hope you’ll consider joining us, Oct 1-3, in Philadelphia. The big question is, “Why?” Your Chamber has been hosting this event in partnership with the Minneapolis Regional Chamber for over 20 years now. Together we bring together CEOs, employers, educators, and government leaders, and travel to a peer city to share and learn best practices. I can’t say enough about the value of these trips. We bring new ideas back to our region, and, perhaps even more valuable, we spend three days together getting to know one another and building stronger relationships within our own region.
Next question: “Why Philadelphia?”
Philadelphia has some really interesting initiatives underway, such as how they’ve developed their downtown, med/tech sectors, and sports complex areas; work around gun violence and public safety in the city; and we’ll be talking economic development, housing, and much more. We’re also planning to visit historic sites together and see a pre-season hockey game in Comcast’s beautifully renovated arena! We hope we can welcome you to one of our nation’s most historic cities as we think about what’s next for our own Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis. You can simply register at this link. I very much look forward to spending some quality time together.
See you in the trenches,
