Includes 126 business and civic leaders
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 2, 2017) — GLI’s GLIDE trip to Nashville is now sold out and a wait list has been created for those wishing to attend, but not currently registered. The trip, from Sept. 10-12, will transport 126 business and civic leaders to Nashville to go deep under the surface and explore the policies and strategies that have driven that city’s explosive economic and population growth.
The three-day trip is designed to give Greater Louisville’s community representatives, elected officials, entrepreneurs, education delegates, and business leaders the opportunity to study how selected cities have overcome obstacles and achieved success.
“Our goal is to bring multiple ideas back that can sustain and accelerate Greater Louisville’s growth, while avoiding some of the pitfalls other fast-growth cities experience,” said Jim O’Malley, chair of GLIDE 2017 and SVP of Global Government Affairs for Brown-Forman Inc.
The GLIDE Steering Committee will be offering two scholarships for the trip. The application period will open in June.
