2013 Vanguard Conference – Next City

2013 Vanguard Conference

Monday, June 10, 2013 – Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Vanguard, an annual conference hosted by Next City and held this year in Cleveland, gathers the country’s best and brightest urban advocates. This year’s event is made possible with support from The George Gund Foundation, Positively Cleveland and Downtown Cleveland Alliance.

Our attendees are high-level, creative and ambitious people under 40 who seek to improve their cities and work for local non-profit organizations, in city government, as social entrepreneurs, artists and in other related fields. Each year, we select 40 people who have demonstrated their ability to have an impact on their city or the national dialogue about urban issues and bring them together for an inspiring series of presentations, workshops, tours and other activities.

The Vanguard class will be publicly announced by May 10, 2013. Click here for more details, including a draft agenda.
