State of the Vision 2019

5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Pickwick Place

Save the Date! State of the Vision 2019 is set for March 14 at The Pickwick Place.

During State of the Vision, we share key highlights from the prior year, vision and plans for future initiatives and projects, and announce awards of recognition in the following areas: Innovation, Collaboration, Economic Development, Community Development, and CU Lead Alumni Impact.

We’re excited to share that this year’s keynote will be delivered by Melody Warnick, Writer, author of ‘This is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are’, published in 2016 by Viking/Penguin and recently released in paperback. Described by Richard Florida as “an important book for so many people who are choosing their place to live,” ‘This Is Where You Belong’ explores the science behind the groundbreaking concept of place attachment and leads longtime residents and newcomers alike to commit to a more passionate relationship with their community. It has been featured in the New York Times, Time Magazine, Fast Company, Psychology Today,,, and Inc.
