This year in Phoenix, the conference will include four concurrent conferences on Your City's Families, Green Cities, Economic Development and Infrastructure, as well as more traditional conference-wide activities. Each of these conferences will incorporate the impact that immigration has on communities, and include keynote speakers, workshops, and peer networking sessions.
