Fall is coming, and that means…it’s time to book hotels. Here’s the current schedule of speaking gigs, conferences and other assorted fun-ness in the last quarter of 2012:
NEW! September 10: I’m visiting the fascinating East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to talk about building small business ecosystems and what community groups and local governments can do to help make that happen. This presentation will be at 6:00 PM at the spectacular East Liberty Presbyterian Church, 116. N. Highland Ave. Forget me… if you haven’t seen this building, you need to. But bring a shovel to scrape your chin off the floor.
September 12: I will be speaking on Small Business Ecosystems at the ICANny Entrepreneur Breakfast in New City, New York. A video feed of this event will be both live-streamed and available online afterward. Click here for more information.
September 13: I will join Mark Barbash and Jim Kinnett for a first-of-its kind workshop covering New Trends in Economic Development for the Ohio City-County Manager Association. This training will be held at the John Glenn School at Ohio State University. Registration is now open to the public — click here for details, fees and other good stuff.
September 21: Peter Mallow will join me at the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana American Planning Association regional conference to help participants read between the lines of market analysis and economic impact studies. Sound like fun? Click here for more information about the conference.
September 28 – October 3: I’ll be schmoozing with the finest at the International Economic Development Association annual conference in Houston, Texas. Sessions and events are still being worked out, so stay tuned.
November 9: I will be giving a webinar on Web 2.0 Tools for Public Engagement as one of the series hosted by the American Planning Association state chapters. Steve Miller of MindMixer will be joining me to talk about the myths and realities of online public engagement. Interested? Not interested, but need those pesky continuing ed credits? Whichever… click here for the full webinar schedule and registration.
December 7: the Miami Valley Chapter of the American Planning Association of Ohio will feature my good friend and Strong Towns spokeperson Chuck Marohn. I will also be wandering around in two headed beast mode: I’m giving one session on Web 2.0 Tools for Public Engagement and one on Creating a Small Business Ecosystem.
Now I just need to find time to get some work done….
