Community Leadership Visit 2021 – Springfield


In 2021, we are making our 27th Community Leadership Visit. Past trips have been successful catalysts for some of the Springfield region's most exciting community and economic development projects.

This year's program will, of course, be different than most in that we are "visiting" our own community. While we won't be leaving Springfield, this year's CLV provides an opportunity to reflect on our strengths and progress in recent years, as well as to take a fresh look at the issues we continue to face as a community.
