A letter of invitation from Leah Konradyat One Region:

Dear Friend,

Your commitment to regional thinking and collaboration is a vital component to the fabric of Northwest Indiana. Last year, our keynote speaker Buie Seawell from the University of Denver gave an inspiring talk about how we can uphold democracy through participation and collaboration. This year we will hear from Tom Murphy, the former Mayor of Pittsburgh about how Pittsburgh turned its decline into a story of revitalization and reinvention. Tom will discuss the importance of public-private partnerships and the political risks he was willing to take to move Pittsburgh forward. Both messages will propel our region forward.

One Region strives to attract and retain talent through investments. To further our mission One Region launched Northwest Indiana's Regional Opportunities Council, a council for business CEOs and executives to drive regional priorities, over 20 businesses have joined. One Region also led a diverse delegation to New Jersey, and this October we will visit Pittsburgh. One Region continues to be engaged on transformational projects such as the South Shore Rail Line's projects and quality of place enhancements.

We are looking forward to our 2018 Annual Luncheon on October 3, 2018 at the Avalon Manor in Merrillville. We hope you'll consider joining us. Your attendance helps to support our positive work. Please be sure to register as soon as possible as space is limited.

If you have any questions, please contact me at or (219) 933-3300. Event sponsorships are currently available.
