Discover Cincinnati USA during Chamber program

A month-long series of discussions and tours will examine our region's history and explore the forces shaping its future.

Discover Cincinnati USA, a new program of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, begins the four-part exploration from 6 P.M.-8 P.M. April 4 with "Metropolitan Cincinnati from 30,000 Feet", an introduction to our region and its place in America and the world.

On April 9 from 8:30 A.M.-3:30 P.M., attendees will meet at the top of Carew Tower for "Where the Past and Present Meet", a walking and bus tour of Cincinnati's past, present and future led by noted local historian Dan Hurley.

Sessions 3 and 4 cover "Creating Quality Places in the Center City and Suburbs", to be held from 7 P.M.-9 P.M. on April 25 and on May 2. The sessions, meeting at Molly Malone's Irish Pub & Restaurant in Covington and the Fairfield Town Center, respectively, will look at regional plans such as Agenda 360 and Vision 2015 and the proactive efforts to create livable communities that such plans have helped produce.

Attendees will also learn about local leadership programs offered by the Chamber, such as Leadership Cincinnati, C-Change, WE Lead, Bold Fusion and WE Speak.

The cost for the entire program is $250, and registration is required. Another program will take place this fall.
