It is that time of year again! You’re invited to consider joining Visible Network Labs and the CU Denver Center on Network Science at the 8th Annual Network Leadership Training Academy (NLTA) May 19-20 in Denver, CO. And this year, I am also excited to announce a signature VNL event preceding the NLTA – the Network Innovation Summit (NIS) on May 18th. As many of you know, the NLTA brings together practitioners, trainers, and network enthusiasts from across sectors to develop the skills to build, manage, and evaluate effective networks. The NIS will address big question about the Future of Networks addressing the ethical, social justice, regulatory, and value-based questions that exist in hyper-connected communities. We are convening thought leaders, trainers, and facilitators from across the country to bring great content and skill-based workshops that let you geek out on networks and find a peer-learning network to support your work.
