Each year, Next City selects 40 applicants whose bright ideas for cities, experience in the field and ambition for the future all show great promise to participate in the annual Vanguard conference. Vanguards — nonprofit directors, city council members, artists, private sector leaders and others influencing the direction of their cities — along with alumni, host city committee representatives and Next City staff gather for an intensive series of presentations, workshops, neighborhood tours and more.
2014 marks the fifth annual Next City Vanguard conference and the first time a Southern city has hosted the event. For more information, visit www.nextcity.org/vanguard.
Interested in joining the 2014 Vanguard Class? Urban advocates under 40 are invited to apply between now and February 14, 2014. Learn more and apply here.
