Immerse Yourself in 2019 Immersion Day

Metro EDGE members and all interested Sacramento young professionals: Immersion Day is coming. On Thursday, November 21, young professionals can immerse themselves in the growth of the Sacramento region over the past ten years and become effective advocates about what makes Sacramento grow.

Attendees will spend half the day learning about the Sacramento region’s key issues up close and personal. Expect to travel throughout Sacramento to hear from community leaders and experts about how our city has changed things like transportation, food and agriculture, education, affordable housing, and more!

Last year’s Immersion Day was a great success and we hope you’ll join us to replicate an impactful half-day full of advocacy, education, and professional development. As young professionals in Sacramento, we’ll be tasked with facing and embracing these key issues and challenges as the region continues to grow.

By attending the 2019 Immersion Day, you’ll have a leg up on the discussion around crucial topics facing the Sacramento region.

  • What is it? An advocacy day to learn about key issues impacting downtown Sacramento and the surrounding region. It’s an opportunity to hear from community leaders and share a young professional perspective with them. 
  • When is it? Thursday, November 21 for half the day. Plan on blocking off roughly 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Where is it? In downtown Sacramento and the surrounding region. Attendees will be busing, driving, and walking to multiple sites around the Sacramento region to hear speakers. Please dress professionally (but comfortably, walking shoes recommended).
  • How can I go? Tickets are available here!

In the coming weeks, we will begin to share more details including our amazing list of speakers, locations, and more.
