October 23: The Emotional Infrastructure of Places with Peter Kageyama

Peter Kageyama

Date: October 23, 2019 11:30am - 1:15pm Venue: St. Petersburg Yacht Club (11 Central Ave, St. Petersburg, FL 33701) Price: $25 for members; $35 for non-members/guests. How do we engage with our city not on a physical level, but an emotional one? What makes a city more equitable? How do we update our infrastructure while considering the emotional consequences of shared spaces? How can parks, piers, dog parks and libraries build social capital and strengthen social bonds? Author Peter Kageyama will address these questions and more at Tiger Bay on October 23rd. Kageyama's new book, The Emotional Infrastructure of Places is the third in a trilogy that includes For the Love of Cities: The Love Affair Between People and Their Places (recognized by Planetizen in 2012 as a Top 10 Book in urban planning, design and development) and Love Where You Live: Creating Emotionally Engaging Places. In it, Kageyama writes about many local examples including The St. Pete Pier and archetypal co-creator Bob Devin Jones. He explores the importance of love and emotional engagement with our places and the ecosystem that “co-creators” – people who love their communities – inhabit, and how supporting them and their work can engender connected, emotionally engaged, and thriving places.   11:30-12:00: Networking + Buffet Luncheon 12:00-1:15: Introductions + Program

September 19: Patrick Rosenstiel, National Popular Vote

Patrick Rosensteil, NPV, Inc. Consultant

Date: September 19, 2019 11:30am - 1:15pm Venue: St. Petersburg Yacht Club Price: $25 for members; $35 for non-members/guests. The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact uses the electoral college to elect the President by popular vote. The US Constitution mandates that State legislators determine how their electors are chosen… but “how” is left up to each state. With the current system, 48 states use a system counts the winner in that state, but the losing side’s votes don’t count nation-wide. By making every vote matter, Presidential candidates will have to appeal to a national audience rather than the 10-12 swing states. Since 2006, 16 jurisdictions have passed the compact representing 196 of the 270 electors required for the compact to go into effect and elect the president. Come hear national expert, Pat “Rosie” Rosenstiel explain National Popular Vote and answer your questions.
