Mayor Mick Cornett to Keynote at 4th Annual Leadership in Capital Projects (LinCP) Forum
AUSTIN, TX – Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, who was recently interviewed on National Public Radio, will be the keynote presenter on April 4, 2012, the second day of the Institute for Leadership in Capital Project (I-LinCP)’s 4th Annual Forum, in Austin, Texas.
Mayor Cornett’s talk is titled, "MAPPING Oklahoma City's Future."
The world has taken notice of Oklahoma City’s remarkable renaissance and its popular Mayor. Oklahoma City makes regular appearances on numerous “Best Of” lists. Mayor Mick Cornett was named Governing magazine’s 2010 “Public Official of the Year” and finished second in the world in the London-based City Mayors Foundation’s “2010 World Mayor Award.”
Much of Oklahoma City’s recent recognition can be traced to Cornett’s tireless marketing of the city through regular national television appearances and national and international speaking engagements.
As Mayor, Cornett led the charge to pass the visionary infrastructure program known as MAPS 3 – a $777-million investment that will dramatically reshape Oklahoma City and enhance the quality of life of its residents. MAPS 3 projects include a 70-acre downtown park, improved sidewalks and hike and bike trails, a modern streetcar system, a new convention center, senior wellness/aquatic centers and other amenities.
Cornett is guiding the completion of one of the nation’s largest public school capital improvement projects – a $700-million program to build or renovate more than 70 schools throughout the city, including a new downtown elementary school serving families in Oklahoma City’s growing urban core. In addition, he is overseeing Project 180, an ambitious and forward-thinking $140-million, three-year redesign of Oklahoma City’s downtown streets and sidewalks, designed to make the city more pedestrian friendly.
The Institute for Leadership in Capital Projects (I-LinCP) is organizing its 4th Annual LinCP Forum, which is April 2-4, 2012, at Travaasa Hotel, just west of Austin, Texas. This Forum focuses on initial capital project PLANNING, project FUNDING, and the law and ethics of design and construction services SELECTION / PROCUREMENT.
The LinCP Forum is where the conversation begins, as the best minds in the capital projects industry, including capital project owners, architects, engineers, planners, contractors, program managers, and others working in the capital projects industry gather in an intimate and safe environment for two-days of honest, informed, and collaborative discussions about the challenges facing the industry, including most urgently, how project stakeholders work together.
Early Bird registration is now open and is being offered to nonprofit/governmental capital project Owners at no cost until Feb. 28, 2012.
