Design Our Future – Updates and Materials!

9:00 am

On Saturday, November 9, the NPC welcomed over 60 attendees representing over 40 organizations participated in the event.

During Part I, small groups were tasked with coming up with five responses to the following prompt:

“Young professionals can collaborate and work together to address the following opportunities and challenges in our region:”

Over 300 ideas were refined into over 40 opportunities and challenges.

During Part II, participants were challenged to locate some 40 items as “short-term” (1-3 years), “medium-term” (4-7 years), and “long-term” (8-10 years) priorities.

The attached materials show these priorities both as a list and as a color-coded “bullseye” that help contextualize the priority time frame.

 As a result, the NPC has gathered and considered all of the responses and decided to take on the following three “issue areas” for 2014 and 2015.

  • Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity
  • Public Policy and Leadership
  • Start-ups, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship

If you are interested in partnering with the NPC on any of the three issue areas listed above, feel free to contact the NPC leadership team at npcannouce@gmail.com!

Stay tuned for more updates!
