Cheers to a successful and wonderful Central States Conference hosted by the Iowa Chapter of ASLA at the World Food Prize Hall of Laureates. What a beautiful setting! The entire Genus Team was able to attend the conference over the past two days and listen to fascinating and informative lectures concentrated on livable communities. Our favorite part of the conference was getting out for the guided tour of Downtown Des Moines with Ken Smith and the City of Des Moines. We can't wait for the conference next year, which will be hosted in Kansas City.
