Tuesday, March 11, 2014

YNDC Deputy Director, Ian Beniston has been selected to participate in the Next City Vanguard Conference.

Next City Vanguard is a leadership gathering that convenes a "40 under 40" who are making an impact in cities across the U.S. and beyond. 2014 marks the fifth annual Vanguard conference and the first time a Southern city has hosted the event.

From April 24 - 26, the 2014 Vanguard class, a dozen Vanguard alumni, Next City staff and local host committee members will gather in Chattanooga, TN for a series of local tours, workshops, an "unconference" and more. This year Vanguards will also be tasked with a challenge and, at the conclusion of the conference, will propose possible solutions to a public audience.
