The Longview Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors began leading Inter City Visits in 2012. The purpose of an Inter City Visit is to provide business and community leaders the opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities our community is facing. The visit also provides an opportunity for interaction among city leaders and facilitates an exchange of best practices and lessons learned.
Why an Inter City Visit? The visit is designed to get new ideas. It will provide an opportunity to introduce our delegation to innovative programs and impactful projects that may be adapted and implemented in our community. Candid speakers will alert our delegation to the challenges and pitfalls with which they are currently struggling.
What happens on an InterCity Visit? Participants will be able to focus on best practices and experience true peer-to-peer learning. The networking and relationship building through shared experiences will help our leadership move forward on building a common foundation of understanding. Delegates will become a more cohesive team working to solve problems on behalf of our community.
