8th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth Conference

Mark your calendar for the 8th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth
Conference, to be held January 22-24, 2009 at the Albuquerque
Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The New Partners for Smart Growth Conference has grown
significantly since it began several years ago — increasing in scope,
attendance, and prestige — and is now considered to be the “premier”
smart growth conference held each year. The strength of this conference
comes from the variety of participants and speakers who cross
disciplines to share experiences and insights, and valuable tools and
strategies to encourage smart growth implementation and “get it done.”

Planning for the 8th annual conference comes on the heels of a
hugely successful conference held in our nation’s capitol in February
2008. Join us in January 2009 in the beautiful state of New Mexico, for
the latest in smart growth — the latest research, cutting-edge
implementation tools and techniques, best practices, model projects,
policies and codes, coordinated networking activities, interactive
learning experiences, and new partners. Most importantly, this dynamic
event offers you the opportunity to network and coordinate with your
peers as well as practitioners from many different disciplines.

The conference will draw a multidisciplinary audience of local
elected officials, city and county staff, landscape architects,
developers and builders, planners, transportation professionals and
traffic engineers, public health professionals, architects, bankers,
realtors, urban designers, parks and recreation professionals,school
superintendents and board members and facilities staff,
environmentalists,crime prevention professionals, advocates for older
adults and youth, bicycle and pedestrian advocates, advocates for
social equity and affordable housing, labor representatives, and all
others committed to building safer, healthier, and more livable
communities everywhere.
