MONDAY MEMO 07.08.13


Chuck Mahron, PE, AICP  will deliver the 2013 RCP Distinguished Lecture on Monday, October 14. He is the Executive Director of Strong Towns, non-profit, non-partisan organization that helps America's towns achieve financial strength and resiliency.
Readings from his book, Thoughts on Building Strong Towns, Vol 1, would be a great addition to Fall syllabi. There will be a copy available on our office bookstand. 

Thank you to Kate for inviting Chuck Mahron to K-State and to Jason for lining up our Ekdahl Lecturer, Ken Greenberg. Nice work!
