Attract and Reframe

We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Twin Cities for this year’s exciting regional conference! As higher education campuses, cities, and businesses face unprecedented challenges to remain strong, competitive, and thriving, this year’s conference will focus on reframing the campus to attract future opportunities using integrated planning practices.

Through forward-focused tools and ideas, we will learn from one another about how integrated planning practices are creating new opportunities.

Over the course of three days, you will participate in thought-provoking keynote sessions, share best practices and lessons learned with planning peers, and take a first-hand look at the campuses of the future.
