Discover Cincinnati Fall Series to focus on CVG and urban education
Whether you have lived in the Cincinnati USA area your whole life or moved here recently, Discover Cincinnati USA offers both lifers and newcomers a great way to expand their horizons and learn about where we are today, how we got here and the efforts under way to guide our region into the future.
Discover Cincinnati USA encompasses three Monday sessions and a Saturday walking/bus tour. Offered as an inexpensive and less intensive alternative to the popular Chamber leadership programs such as Leadership Cincinnati, CChange and WE Lead, the $250 package price for all four sessions is the best way to get an insightful view of the forces shaping the region we call home.
“This program is for people interested in understanding their community in a fresh way,” says Dan Hurley, Discover Cincinnati tour director and noted local historian, “I hope to see more faces, familiar and not-so familiar, at the fall sessions.”
“The bus tour was a great experience for me. I have lived here most of my life and have just recently decided to get more involved. This [program] is reinforcing that decision for me.”
