A once-a-year meeting of the minds only taps into a small amount of the potential for this program, so 360 seeks to extend the mission and best parts of the conference for our community. Now we can connect almost every month to learn, question, and be curious as a group of powerful change-makers.

"At its heart, GPLEX is an effort to move the needle. By traveling and learning together, this group of decision makers gets an infusion of exposure to other cities’ best ideas, and a concentrated dose of high-level networking. GPLEXers have connected on many occasions to generate real change that benefits our region. There’s nothing more powerful than a close network of movers and shakers who can solve problems on the fly with real cross-sector collaboration."
