Conference Audio Recordings

The LGC has coordinated with Hungry Mind Recordings to have the majority of all the sessions at the 8th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth Conference in Albuquerque audio-recorded. With so many concurrent sessions running throughout the program, the availability of these recordings actually allows you to attend more sessions than was physically possible on-site.

In keeping with our commitment to be more "green" and reduce the amount of materials produced for the event, you can now purchase audio downloads as well as audio CDs!

A Green Conference!

Check out the steps we took to make this a greener conference.

People from multiple disciplines are now talking about Smart Growth; and if they aren't doing it, they are talking about the need to do it. This conference will again bring together interested people from ever-expanding disciplines to learn everything from the basics to the cutting edge of implementation.
