Members’ Meeting

A get-together for NewCities movers and shakers

We bring our members and partners together, periodically, for interactive meetings that allow us to determine our strategy and promote networking within our community. These important meetings have three main goals: to encourage dialogue, strengthen relationships between members, and deepen our understanding of shared areas of interest and potential collaborations.

Our next Members Meeting will take place in Montréal, the home city of the NewCities team, on September 26th, 2018. The one-day event will welcome members, trustees, partners, and key leaders from across the globe to discuss pressing issues of urban innovation, shared interests, and upcoming NewCities initiatives. Interactive activities will allow for networking opportunities, the chance to delve into relevant topics that NewCities’ work addresses, and the ability to build partnerships between members. Two site visits across Montréal will showcase impressive developments and the solutions they champion. And of course, we will experience the city’s unique and creative venues, dining, and cultural sites.
