KEYNOTE SPEAKER-WEDNESDAY
Eric Klinenberg – Going Solo: A Demographic Sea Change

Our special guest is Eric Klinenberg, a New York University professor whose ground-breaking demographic research and book – “Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of People Living Alone” – holds dramatic implications for town and city officials and the important work that we do.

An internationally recognized and oft-interviewed expert on sociology and American demographics, Eric’s presentation is sure to challenge the conventional wisdom about living in families and separately. He will also explore the trend’s effects on economic development, planning, transportation and even fire-rescue and police service.

 

FEATURED SPEAKER-WEDNESDAY

Municipal Collaboration: Real-Life Case Studies
Our featured speaker this morning is Suzanne Leland, a professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte who has worked hands-on with municipal collaboration and consolidation projects in Kansas, Kentucky and elsewhere in the U.S. What works? What doesn’t? What should local and state leaders really expect from collaborative efforts? Suzanne will bring hard facts and data to this discussion, which comes at an important point in Maine government and politics.

 

FEATURED SPEAKER-THURSDAY

Killer Show: Lessons from the Station Nightclub Fire
In recognition that this is National Fire Prevention Week, our featured speaker this year is John Barylick, an attorney who represented many families whose loved ones died in the fire and a sought-after lecturer on safety, medical and legal issues.
On Feb. 20, 2003, the world was stunned by the news of a tragic fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, R.I. This presentation analyzes the causes of that fire, conditions that contributed to its severity, and will include discussion of the aftermath and what can be done to prevent similar catastrophes.
