9/12/2022 1:00 PMCapital Assets Management – Making Decisions for the FutureCities construct and maintain a large array of assets, ranging from government buildings, like city hall or community centers utilities, to above and below ground infrastructure, equipment, computers and tools. These assets are essential to the delivery of service, and local government has an inherent responsibility to maintain these assets in good working order.

9/12/2022 2:15 PMThe Third Place: Why Does Your Community Need One? (AMGI)“THIRD PLACES” are the heart of a community’s social vitality and the foundation of a functioning democracy.  - “Celebrating the Third Place” by Ray Oldenburg In community building, the third place is the social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home ("first place") and the workplace ("second place"). In his influential book The Great Good Place (1989), Ray Oldenburg argues that third places are important for civil society, democracy, civic engagement, and establishing feelings of a sense of place.  Third places, then, are "anchors" of community life and facilitate and foster broader, more creative interaction.  Of the 11 signs that a city will succeed, there is one surprising marker, and perhaps it is even the most reliable one.  Successful cities have craft breweries.  A town that has craft breweries also has a certain kind of entrepreneur, and a critical mass of mainly young customers.  You may think we are joking, but just try to find an exception.  Join us as we share craft brewery designs and learn the thought processes behind some of the most successful “third places” in Missouri cities. Attendees will have an opportunity to sample offerings from St. Louis craft breweries.

This session is meant to leave you with the tools to help you, your family, and your coworkers survive any emergency.
