Step Up to the Challenge and REGISTER for the 2013 Summit today! It’s our 5 Year Anniversary and we’re celebrating in a big way. Join us on Friday, April 19, 2013 from 2:00-6:00 PM at one of the region’s greatest community assets, the Dayton Art Institute.
For the first time ever, we’re bringing in a keynote speaker to bring focus to this year’s Summit. UpDayton is pleased to welcome Mayor John Fetterman of Braddock, Pennsylvania – the face of Rust Belt renewal – to speak on leadership and community development. Mayor John stepped up to the challenge in his community where he is famous for leading a wave of community-driven revitalization projects.
Sign up to take action on one of the following Challenges:
Livability Challenge – At our February 18th Perspectives and Pints event, we discussed current UpDayton projects that address Livability in Dayton, as well as areas in which this year’s UpDayton Summit Team should focus. A group of over 50 young professionals decided to focus on building Vibrant Communities in the greater downtown Dayton area. How would you make make Dayton neighborhoods more vibrant? Sign up for this Challenge and share your ideas at the Summit.
Campus Challenge – How do we burst the campus bubble? Teammates in this challenge will brainstorm ways to get students off campus and connected to the local economy based on feedback from students and campus life staff from area colleges and universities.
Entrepreneur Challenge – How do we spur new businesses in Dayton? Take on the challenge of creating and hosting a contest for new businesses in Dayton. This team will build on existing resources and momentum for entrepreneurs.
And don’t forget, after we’re done conquering these challenges, we’ll conquer the dance floor too at the Up All Night After Party at Therapy Café (452 E 3rd St Dayton, OH 45402) from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Networking, entertainment and hanging out with friends will be the only requirements at this event. Complimentary food and a cash bar featuring specialty drinks awaits you at the Therapy Café. We are not done yet! New this year: After Party Swag Bags. These specialty themed bags will feature gifts for lucky Summit attendees.
