About the Conference


Save the Date!

October 27 and 28, 2014

Convene Conference Center
730 3rd Avenue, NYC

Our national, invitation-only conference is held over several days each fall. Leading up to the larger gathering, the Foundation conducts smaller regional meetings, or “salons,” around the country to explore related themes. These conversations help identify critical, timely topics percolating in different communities and help us shape the agenda for the national meeting.

Registration fee: $500 (breakfasts and lunches included)
