Register now: CEOs for Cities National Meeting, Sept. 29 - Oct. 1

The agenda won't be finalized for a few weeks, but if you're planning to attend the 2013 CEOs for Cities National Meeting, Sept. 29 - Oct. 1 in Grand Rapids, MI, you can save the date and register now
The meeting will be held during ArtPrize, the internationally acclaimed art competition that Time Magazine recently listed in its Five Festive Events You Won't Want to Miss in 2013
The world's most lucrative art competition isn't in New York City or Hong Kong but in Grand Rapids ... Founded in 2009 by Rick DeVos -- heir to the Amway fortune -- the annual ArtPrize (Sept. 18 to Oct. 6) will distribute some $560,000 to its 2013 winners, chosen by both a professional jury and the votes of the more than 400,000 visitors who will arrive to view the work. The prize money is the largest of its kind in the world, but ArtPrize's real difference isn't cash. It's the event's "unusual and daring ability to completely democratize the process of artistic judgment," says 2011 judge Noit Banai. "Whether one agrees or disagrees with the grand public's choice, the process empowers ordinary people to be the sole judge of value."
