Dave Williams - Hacking buildings and preserving history
Laurana Wong - The Circus Creative Collective
Michael DiFlora - How to REAP and renovate an old house
Greg Meredith - Why creatives and makers have an advantage over traditional MBAs

Tony Kroeger - Dayton's first skyscraper
Matt Sauer - Let's remove Hwy 35 from downtown Dayton

We are waiting to find out if Alexandria Rivers of Twist Cupcakery, Terry Perdue of The Unit, and Derrick Martin for redeveloping North Main Street will be able to present. We'll keep you posted.

Expect the usual modest beer, wine, pop, water and salty snacks at our 20-minute beer break. There will be a lot to talk about, so you'll be thirsty.
