Communities in Control 2013

Communities in Control brings together all those who work in, work for or care about community to focus on our common strengths and nut out ways to shape our destiny. Delegates were given the opportunity to hear from some of this nation's foremost thinkers and speakers - people who were able to give us a head start on the long view - to learn and reflect, to meet others who care about what they care about, and to start to plot a way forward.

As in past years, the questions and comments sessions at the end of each speech often proved to be just as insightful as the speeches themselves. So too the conversations delegate-to-delegate during the breaks, and the ones taking place on Twitter (#cic2013).
