There are two conferences listed in the Kiosk right now:

Urban Convergence 2003 -- St. Louis October 3-5

Urban Sustainability Conference -- Edmonton September 9-10.

The sustainability conference is probably more important for Canadians. Although it will address sustainability as a practice, there will probably also be a lot of discussion of the new practice by the Federal Government of judging grants and funding applications based upon sustainability indices to be developed by each municipality.

You will definitely want to attend the Upper Midwest APA conference in Milwaukee in September. Having attended Upper Midwest conferences in all four of our member states (IA, IL, MN, WI), I can tell you that the Wisconsin folks always put on the best show. There's probably info on the WAPA website:

Enjoy!

I wish it was in September so I could go. It is in October and the same dates as a must attend conference in Des Moines for city finance officers.

The last one I was at was in Madison and it was great. Some very good sessions, and a great social schedule too, including a pub crawl.

Plus, there are some Milwaukeeans (myself included) on here that would probably take you to some cool places if the event planners fail to schedule any fun.

Hopefully I will be able to attend.

Hopefully EPA's National Brownfields Conference in Portland, OR October 27-29. Registration is free and the site has a link to a "schorolship program" which can help pay for travel and lodging.

If not, there's also the Southern New England APA conference Oct. 23-24 in Hartford.

Was there a deadline for the scholarship program? I did not see anything about it on the site.

Urban Convergence

I just registered for the Urban Convergence conference in STL. Anybody else going? It sounds like it'll be good, plus it doesn't cost too much (even for us college students.)

ULI Workshop
Basic Real Estate Development
Washington, D.C.
October 16–17, 2003

http://planet.uli.org/events/510104/510104_fst.htm
Ooooh. I am very jealous. ULI is such an outstanding organization that I am sure this is an excellent course. The location could be better, though. ;)

I just returned from the IEDC Annual Conference in Cincinnati. Next year it will be in Saint Louis. I also intend to go to the APA conference next year. Right now I need to make a choice between my first NDC course in Denver in December, or going to Cuba in January.

Cardinal - if you havent attended NDC before I highly recommend it. I'm sending Prudence to the Real Estate Finance course in Atlanta Oct 20-24.
I took IEDC's (CUED's) real estate redevelopment course, which was mostly instructed by NDC staff. It was excellent. I'm paying for this one though, so I have to decide if it will be NDC or Cuba - I can't afford both. Cuba may be getting more difficult to visit in the future.

How was the IEDC conference? Highlights? Any interesting speakers or seminars? I'd like to hear about it.

This is my second IEDC conference. The sessions in Oakland last year were better, but Cincinnati was a much more interesting location (excepting San Fran, since the conference was on the other side of the bay).

IEDC's particular advantage is the opportunity it provides to network among professionals out-of-state, and to talk with some of the key site selection consultants. The best sessions were an open discussion of site selection data standards, in which several of the consultants participated, and a session on retail development.
