NEW on 3/3: We are please to announce that GLUE has opened up two of our conference events to locals who are unable to attend the entire conference.  Tickets to the dinners being hosted on Thursday, 3/12, and Friday, 3/13, are now available.

Thursday: We will be enjoying locally-sourced food (vegan options available) catered by Papineau & Co. at the Sprecher Brewery in Glendale, at 6:00.  After enjoying appetizers and mingling, we’ll hear from Milwaukee Common Council President Willie Hines, on the Importance of Local Government, and from Carol Coletta, CEO of CEOs for Cities, who will speak on the role of young leaders in our cities.  After dinner, we’ll receive a tour of the brewery.  One beer is provided with dinner.  Tickets are $45, or $140 for four.

Friday: We are hosting a transportation-themed dinner at Trocadero, beginning at 7:00.  Please join us to hear Dave Wetzel’s talk: Using Land Value to Build Sustainable Communities: How Implementation of Rail Can Be Funded Without Raising Taxes. Following Dave’s speech, participate in a workshop to design local strategies to advocate for transit.  Cash bar.  Tickets are $30, or $100 for four.

You can register for each of these events here.  Your registration is complete once you make a donation (in the amount of the tickets you are purchasing) to GLUE here.
