  • Francesca Carlow, Nassau County Chambers of Commerce
  • Anthony Labriola, Long Island Puppet Theatre
  • Hon. Laura Curran, Nassau County
  • Sean Sallie, Nassau County
  • Mindy Germain, Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington
  • Kim Kaiman, Town of North Hempstead

“Inclusive conversations are key to Long Island’s future,” said Fair Media Council CEO Jaci Clement. “What the Smart Growth Summit provides is an exclusive opportunity to meet and hear from people engaged in all levels of the process of making Long Island a better place to live and work, and I’m pleased to represent the Fair Media Council and play a role in one of those very needed discussions.”

Vision Long Island’s Smart Growth Summit is an annual event. Spearheaded by Vision’s Executive Director Eric Alexander, the summit provides an opportunity for municipalities, academia, builders, planners, community groups and more to be heard on issues important to the future of Long Island.
