Mid America Trails and Greenways Conference

MATAG1

“FIND A PATH OR MAKE ONE”

The Mid American Trails and Greenways Conference (MATAG) is an event that brings together trail and greenway interests from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin.

This year the conference will be held October 27-30, 2013 in Matteson, IL.

In these tough economic times, organizations, government and non-profits often find a narrow path they are allowed to work within. Budgets are strained and our usual path to implementing projects has changed (can you say Transportation Enhancement, anyone?) so we are all left to create new ways to provide the quality of life amenities to our constituents.

At this conference we will explore our opportunities to continue our on-the-ground successes through interactive field sessions, building on case studies with not only local experts, but with professionals from afar bringing an unique mix of “project networking.” Being in the field takes attendees out of the panel presentation mode and immerses them in the conversations of “how to and lessons learned” while providing an interesting hands on experience.
