Past Workshops

Events that assemble disrupters, decision-makers and doers, from across the country, around the issues that matter most in their cities have been at the core of CEOs for Cities from the start. Exclusive events for our City Clusters — local/regional groups of cross-sector leaders who join the CEOs for Cities network together and work as a team — launched in 2024. We look forward to growing our calendar of cluster offerings. Flip back through these resources to catch up on previous events.
