The annual Canal Alliance Congress, held each Spring, brings together partners within the Illinois and Michigan National Heritage Area to share ideas, progress, and network. The last few years have seen the use of the pecha kucha format presentations, allowing 20 seconds for 20 powerpoint slides. This allows many different topics and ideas to be presented in a short time. The theme for the 2019 Canal Alliance Congress is “Engaging the Next Generation”. For more information or to buy a ticket to attend call (815)220-1848 or visit www.iandmcanal.org.
