Next American Vanguard Seeking Leaders

The urban affairs magazine Next American City is hosting NEXT AMERICAN VANGUARD: Setting a New Agenda for Urban Leaders, its first annual annual conference geared toward bringing together the next generation of urban leaders. For the two-day event on May 20-21, 2009 in Washington, DC, it will invite 30 individuals from across the country to discuss their role in shaping the future of cities. Says the magazine, “By creating this Vanguard network, Next American City will be paving the way for our future generation of leaders to connect with one another, offer support and resources and learn real-life lessons from their counterparts.”

There are many inspiring leaders working in urban parks that could contribute greatly to this event. If you are one of these people, apply to be invited to the conference by visiting www.americancity.org/vanguard (Deadline is April 1, 2009.)
