The Aspen Institute has earned a reputation for gathering diverse, nonpartisan thought leaders, creatives, scholars and members of the public to address some of the world’s most complex problems. But the goal of these convenings is to have an impact beyond the conference room. They are designed to provoke, further and improve actions taken in the real world.

The inaugural Hometown Summit is a three-day, immersive convening for 300 exceptional local leaders in small and mid-sized American cities, as well as their counterparts in national organizations. The goal of the Summit is to foster innovative policies and practices across the United States, and to amplify the voices of leaders in these communities.
