Placemaker and CEO of Adelaide, Australia Peter Smith is coming to Michigan to speak at the Michigan Local Government Managers Association Winter Institute at the end of the month. Because he’s traveling so far, we figured we better take advantage of his time here with a fun, low-key, networking and information-sharing event in Detroit.
Join the League at a networking and idea-mixing event with experts and practitioners who are passionate about building great communities.
Placemaking Happy Hour & Panel Discussion: Monday, January 26 from 4-6 PM at Seva Detroit
Look forward to great conversation and a cross disciplinary panel discussion moderated by Michigan Association of Planning Executive Director Andrea Brown. Panelists include:
- Peter Smith, CEO of Adelaide, Australia
- Alicia Marion-George, Co-owner of Motor City Java & Tea House
- Sarida Scott, Executive Director of Community Development Advocates of Detroit
- Steve Baker, Councilmember for the City of Berkley & IT Strategy and Innovation Lead at DTE Energy
The event is free and open to the public but space is limited so please RSVP here.
The League is pleased to host appetizers and there is a cash bar available. We’ll also be selling our new book, The Economics of Place: The Art of Building Great Communities.
Come for the event, but stay for dinner
Spend the evening in Detroit! Seva has a full dinner menu and there are plenty of restaurants in Midtown and within walking distance of the event, including:
