That was an incredible day – opening session with Nan Roman, followed by roughly 25 different workshops until about 5 p.m. We’re just about to start the fun part – reception! – after a very productive day of presentations, panels, and exchanging ideas. I personally attended a workshop about data (with Dennis Culhane!) and one about prevention techniques (with VERY engaging speakers Matt White of Ohio and Mellisa Mowery of New York). HPRP must’ve been the word of the day, cuz that second workshop had about 150 people in with seats filled and people standing around the edges!
Tomorrow features Secretary Donovan, new White House Director on Urban Affairs Policy Adolfo Carrion, 75 more workshops, and a ton of other information.
I’ll post reception pictures later! Until then, some workshop pics.
