Denver Colorado, May 21-23, 2009. Register Online
BALLE’s 7th Annual Conference will be in Denver, Colorado, one of America’s leading cities committed to economic sustainability.
We invite you to join fellow business owners, community investors, economic development experts, and sustainability leaders as we share best practices, discover new connections, and set the course for building local living economies.
The call for a new economic model built on local ownership and environmental stewardship has moved to center stage. From small towns to urban centers throughout North America and around the world, communities are mobilizing our core living economies principles.
The conference will highlight a broad range of practical tools and inspirational voices, while showcasing the remarkable impact that our 65 networks are having in their communities every day. This year we’ve arranged for leading business and organization experts to provide one-on-one consultation sessions throughout the conference. We’ve also made sure to provide time for deeper conversations, as well as the opportunity to extend your stay and explore the local community over the holiday weekend.
The annual BALLE conference has proven to be one of the most dynamic and productive events in the sustainable economic development movement. This year’s gathering promises to deliver an even greater return on your investment. Together we are catalyzing, strengthening, and connecting local living economies.
