Registration Open for 2018 State of the Region

February 6, 2018

Registration is now open for the 2018 State of the Region. The signature luncheon brings together our region’s and state’s top political, business and civic leaders to celebrate our community’s accomplishments and address challenges we face as a region.

State of the region presentation lobby

This year’s theme is “Growth. Development. Opportunity.” The luncheon will feature Jennifer Keesmaat as the keynote speaker. Keesmaat is a Canadian urban planner, and the former chief planner for the City of Toronto. She is passionate about creating places where people flourish. Named one of the “most powerful people in Canada” by Maclean’s, and one of the “most influential” by Toronto Life, she spent five years as Toronto’s chief city planner, where she was celebrated for her innovative and collaborative approach to city-building. Now a distinguished visitor in residence at the University of Toronto, Keesmaat shares her vision for cities of the future, and her belief in inspired leadership.

The State of the Region will also showcase upcoming plans for Central Ohio and highlight community accomplishments. The Regional Leadership Award, William C. Habig Collaborative Achievement Award, and William H. Anderson Excellence in Public Service Award will all be presented at the luncheon.

See you April 19th at the Hilton Columbus Downtown!
