10TH ANNUAL RCGA LEADERSHIP EXCHANGE TRIP

Since the inaugural visit to Cleveland back in 1996—and subsequent RCGA Leadership Trips to Seattle, Baltimore, Denver, Toronto, Boston, San Diego, St. Louis and, most recently, Atlanta last November—the Leadership Trip has been a civic “best practices” experience that seeks to learn from the experiences of other regions, while facilitating peer-to-peer networking among and between St. Louis leaders and leaders in other metropolitan areas, and nurturing a regional community here.
Destination: the Twin Cities.
Featured speakers anticipated include Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak; St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman; former U.S. Sen. David Durenberger; former St. Paul Mayor George Latimer; former State Sen. and former Metropolitan Council Chair Ted Mondale; present Metropolitan Council Chair Peter Bell; nationally recognized, co-author of the 1997 Peirce Report on Greater St. Louis Curt Johnson; and K-12 education policy and charter school national leader Ted Kolderie.
Some of the issues to explore on the Minneapolis-St. Paul Leadership Trip are:
- An in-depth overview of “What Makes The Twin Cities Work”
- K-12 Educational Reform
- The Successful Charter School Experience
- Healthcare Reform in the City of Reform
- Creating a Dynamic Quality of Life: Downtown Revitalization, Parks & Trains
- Changing Dynamics of Business Leadership in the Twin Cities
- “The Artful Twin Cities”
- Regionalism-The Metropolitan Council as a National Model for Regional Governance
