Call for speakers at GTS 2017

Would you like to be a speaker?  Or have a suggestion for someone we should contact? Our theme is Plan. Fund. Build. Manage.

The program will be heavy on how-to sessions with practical content on the full lifecycle of successful trails, from concept and construction to operations and long-term sustainability.  Share your proven approach or innovative trail project with a broad, statewide audience. Or lead a mobile workshop sharing the latest techniques.

All sponsorship levels include free registrations. AICP CM credits available.

Submit your RFP here. Deadline November 15.

An executive summary of this year’s Trail Summit is now available on our Resources page.  Please share it with colleagues and your broader networks.

You’ll also find most speaker presentations there too, a valuable reference. Special thanks to everyone who presented in Carrollton.

We’re also grateful to our generous sponsors who make it all possible.

Our team is already planning the next Georgia Trail Summit for April 2017 in Columbus.

Can you help us expand our network there?  Our first meeting to begin planning the event is August 12 and we meet monthly on 2nd Fridays. Please consider joining the planning committee and/or email your suggestions for good speakers in Columbus, sponsor candidates and people who would enjoy attending.

Thanks for following us year round on Facebook, Twitter, & our blog, and for your commitment to Georgia’s growing trail family.
