REGISTRATION FOR THE TRANSITION HOLYOKE CONFERENCE IS NOW FULL.
We are thrilled by the community interest in this event and realize we will not be able to accomodate everyone who is interested this time, due to limited capacity and resources.
This particular event is sold out, but over the coming year, there will be other community gatherings to engage your voice and the input of other Holyoke residents.
If you didn't register already, feel free to leave your name and contact information on the waitlist page of this website, for us to stay connected with you about upcoming community events.
Due to the high community interest and the number of tickets sold, the event has been moved to the War Memorial Building at 310 Appleton Street. The event is still being held from 12-5pm, with a light lunch provided for registered participants.
In the spirit of innovation, transparency, and bold leadership, Holyoke Mayor Elect Alex Morse is excited to announce events to engage and involve the community throughout the transition process. Mayor Elect Morse is hosting a Unity Breakfast, a Transition Holyoke Conference, and has launched a transition website: www.transitionholyoke.com. This is an unprecedented level of transparency and community engagement throughout a mayoral transition.
First ever gathering to engage the citizens of Holyoke in the transition of mayoral administrations, and collectively think about the priorities and goals for Holyoke's future.
Mayor Elect Alex Morse spoke to thousands of residents during the campaign and heard common themes of innovation, bold leadership and transparency. In the spirit of those ideals, Mayor Elect Alex Morse organized this conference to engage the community in a deeper, more meaningful way, in the transition process.
This event, different by design, is structured to challenge, inspire and focus the best thinking from the diversity of residents in Holyoke. Creative collaborative think tanks will emerge by the end of the day, focused around community priorities such as:
• Green Economy
• Economic Development
• Public Safety
• Youth Engagement/Issues
• Art and Creative Economy
• Civic Pride
• Marketing/Holyoke's New Story
