My reflections on the conference

My reflection is that the conference lit a fire under a lot of people.  What I particularly took from it was that communities have to understand what they want to be (i.e. recognize their values and catalogue their assets) so they can guide economic development that fits the people who live in them.  My action was to agree to become the new president of the Annapolis Board of Trade (ABoT), so that’s my new volunteer job!
