2022 Annual Summit

Transform Fresno Annual Summit

The Annual Summit is an opportunity to hear from Transform Fresno Projects and community members about the ongoing efforts, funded by the Transformative Climate Communities program. Attendees are able to participate in engaging sessions and get a taste of Fresno’s future.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s event was virtual. Visitors from all over Fresno logged on and watched as our panelists shared their updates and insights. Each session was followed by Q&A from the participants.

The Summit featured a keynote address from City of Fresno Mayor, Jerry Dyer and Strategic Growth Council Executive Director, Lynn Von Koch-Liebert.
