NextGen 7 - Atlanta, GA
 Thursday Program
May 20, 2010 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Location: (Room 208)
Each year, NextGen hosts its own FREE day-long event before the annual CNU, open to anyone interested in attending (you do not have to attend CNU to attend the NextGen Thursday event). The NextGen congress usually addresses the themes of that CNU and advances discussion on a number of other specific issues important to NextGen members. Through a series of speakers, panels and a highly engaging facilitation process called Open Source, first time attendees and multi-time returners can meet, share knowledge and inspire excitement for the future of new urbanism.
