Ken SalazarRMLUI’s annual land use conference, Moving Beyond Recession: What’s Next?, was held March 12–14 and was a resounding success. We had nearly 450 attendees, and over 40 sessions (compared to our usual 32), as well as a keynote by Ken Salazar, a work shop on The Dynamics of the Land Use Case, two plenary lunch talks, and two tours. Thank you to all of our session organizers for putting together a great line up of sessions, all of our attendees, and especially to all of our sponsors, who helped make it all possible.

We were very pleased to collaborate with the Metropolitan Greenspaces Alliance (MGA), a national group of conservation coalitions working across the country to increase the impact and efficiency of conservation investments in metropolitan environments. MGA organized this year’s featured track: Conservation in Metropolitan Areas.
