The Smart Growth Social is the Coalition for Smarter Growth’s most popular party of the year! A fundraiser to celebrate the smart growth supporters and urbanists who embody the smart growth movement in our region, this annual event (now in its seventh year) attracts over 250 of the best and brightest urbanists, community activists and advocates, and professionals from across public service, urban planning, and transportation in the DC region.

With refreshments from DC’s craft beer scene and food from local eateries, there’s so much to enjoy about Smart Growth Social.

 If that weren’t enough, each year the event features a short TED-style talk from a star in the smart growth and urbanism fields. This year’s speaker is Dan Reed, urbanist, blogger, thought- leader. Dan is an advocate for sustainable and inclusive communities and a keen observer of our very diverse and changing suburbs. In addition to his blog, Just Up the Pike, Dan writes for Washingtonian Magazine, and is a planner at Toole Design Group, a real estate agent, and member of the editorial board of Greater Greater Washington.
