Sometimes a chance meeting can change the ecosystem of an entire community. By finding themselves at the intersection of introductions and innovation, Bob Vanden Burgt and Bryan Chan formed an unbreakable team that has leveraged thousands of new connections, relationships and ideas throughout the Madison community. They helped take a relatively unheard of event and turned it into one of the most popular and influential networking opportunies in the city, allowing it to serve as the inspiration and spring board for other collaborative endeavors in our community. This presentation will show how powerful things happen in the world because of connections and the network effect.

@ VOL 16 ON JUN 29, 2017

The honorable Mayor of the City of San Elizario, Maya Sanchez tells the story of a group of determined individuals worked tirelessly to save their community by creating a new city in 2013. As president of this group, it was assumed that Maya would run for mayor, but she almost did not. However, having birthed this new entity, she quickly realized that she and the group of community organizers that made it happen must not stop with it’s creation and ensure that the young City was set on the right path.
