Leadership Eastside hosts civic incubator summit May 12

Leadership Eastside will host its annual civic incubator summit, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, May 12, at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. This event will bring together community leaders to launch community teams to extend the benefits of the Eastside economic boom to address issues and people currently being missed.

A rising tide should lift all boats. Leadership Eastside alumni and civic incubator partners will form new community impact teams focused on 2017’s theme of “Rising Tides – Collaborative Innovation for All Eastsiders.”

All incubator participants are asked to bring their perspectives on effecting change related to arts and culture, basic needs, education, the environment, health and wellness, the economy, transportation, and community building.

This year, the civic incubator’s focus is to develop and deliver community innovations that lift all Eastsiders by collaborating with business, non-profit, public sector, and grassroots leaders.

There are two options to participate: A full-day option from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. a lunch keynote and community advisory forum option from noon to 1:30 p.m.
