Strengthening connections with South Sound leaders while
learning innovative approaches from forward-thinking cities
Join us October 9-12th for our Aspire Intercity Leadership Conference to study Raleigh-Durham. You will investigate new programs and initiatives, and learn how to adapt best practices to meet the growing needs of the South Sound.
We have put together an exciting, in-depth program designed to introduce you to Raleigh's projects for downtown redevelopment, waterfront activation, regional collaboration, tech attraction, young professional retention, innovation, diversity initiatives, transportation, arts and culture, and more.
Aspire Raleigh-Durham offers an opportunity for personal growth and the development of strategies to secure the future of our region as an economically vibrant and culturally rich community. It's an opportunity that shouldn't be missed.
Raleigh-Durham has a long history of economic development built on innovation and entrepreneurship. The region builds on its history of collaboration, embracing education to fuel innovation, and equality stemming from one of three Black Wall Streets in the U.S. This positioned the community as an Amazon HQ2 top twenty site and was just named #6 on US News’ Best Places to Live 2022 list. With the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber’s focus on equity, partnerships, entrepreneurship, & workforce development we are excited bring lessons home from our fellow leaders in Raleigh-Durham.
Aspire Raleigh-Durham will reinvigorate your commitment to dig deep, compare and contrast, remove barriers, and find collaborative and inclusive solutions to move our region forward!
