California Downtown Association

2006 Conference Overview

Making Waves: Shaping Downtown Transformations
Successful downtowns and business districts burst through inertia and establish momentum for change, meshing community visions with economic forces that build into a sustainable vitality. Often, change begins by the efforts of wave-makers: They shake up the establishment and create energy that flows into action. Our downtown executives, managers and city partners must be skilled at generating and harnessing the energy that will flow into a tide of successful transformation. Our 2006 conference agenda will focus on wave-making innovation and "surfing-to-success" lessons!

We welcome proposals for premiere educational sessions that showcase inertia-busting strategies and innovative solutions to business district challenges, present effective methods for operating successful programs that energize a district or an organization. We also welcome motivational sessions geared to stimulating creative thinking and to developing leaders who can ride the waves and surf to success!

Our attendees hold high expectations for dynamic presentations that deliver specific steps in successful strategies. Presentations that include case studies and sessions that allow for extensive presenter/attendee interaction are most welcome.
