SGF Business Insider – June 2021: How Do We Learn from Peer Cities?


The Chamber has been leading the Community Leadership Visit (CLV) for more than a quarter-century, taking a delegation of community leaders to a peer city to learn from the experiences of another community and to bring back ideas that will benefit the Springfield region.

In this episode, four CLV participants talk about what has been learned from previous visits, how it has been put to work in Springfield, and why it's important for leaders in all sectors to be involved. Hear from:

  • Brad Erwin of Paragon Architecture
  • Heather Hardinger, member of Springfield City Council
  • Dr. Alina Lehnert, president of the Springfield R-12 Board of Education
  • Tim Rosenbury, the city's Director of Quality of Place Initiatives
