BoldFusion 2005 - September 30th
For those of you that didn't make it out to BoldFusion in 2004, you need to put it on the calendar for 2005. They haven't 'officially' confirmed/anounced the date for the event yet, but I can tell you it will be Friday afternoon September 30th at Longworth Hall. You'll likely see a lot more about this event in the coming months at events across the city, but wanted to get it on your calendar. It will be the weekend after Midpoint Music Festival (which is also the same weekend as the dowtown tour of living).
For thost of you that don't know much about the event, it's a great forum for young professionals to both learn about initiatives in the city that affect them, but also to sound off to the leaders making decisions for our city. As a result of last years events, we saw Stephen Leeper and 3CDC make some changes to plans for Fountain Square (and hold YP Specific forums) after it became perfectly clear that YPs were less than enamored with the original Fountain Square plans (Speaking of which, the new plans for Fountain Sqaure should drop on City Hall on or around April 21st). It also led in part to P&G stepping up as a corporate sponsor for MPMF after Bill Donabedian pointed out that most Cincy corporations were not putting their money where their mouths were, and talking about YP retention, but not taking action to help make the city attractive to Young Pros.
This years event should be even bigger and better with panels focused on the issues we all care about... something you'd like to see on the agenda for us to talk about? Comment here, and I'll do what I can to get it on the agenda.
