2012 ICF Symposium Recap
Walsh University proudly hosted the Inaugural Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) Institute for the Study of the Intelligent Community International Symposium, October 24-25, 2012.
Over 300 attendees from as far away as South Korea travelled to North Canton for the two-day symposium “Seizing Our Destiny: New Models for Re-energizing Our Communities, Our Schools, Our Economies,” which was carefully designed to provoke discussion and creative solutions in an interactive format. The ICF Institute Symposium was a one-of-a-kind event that brought business executives, international political leaders, highly-respected educators and local partners together to explore new models for re-energizing communities, schools and economies. The ICF Symposium was supported by a generous grant from the Herbert W. Hoover Foundation.
