Aim Ideas Summit

2019 Aim Ideas Summit

French Lick Springs Resort
August 27-29, 2019

The Aim Ideas Summit spotlights just how comprehensive our commitment is to accelerating Indiana municipalities. We packed in more than 130 exhibitors, organizations, and state agencies specializing in municipal government solutions, an exciting mix of speakers, 31 workshops, networking opportunities, and one-on-one consultations into a mere three days.

There is also some association business that needs to happen at the conference. Be sure to attend the Opening and Closing Business Sessions to help elect Aim officers, board members, and formulate policies for the coming year.

Online registration has closed for the 2019 Aim Ideas Summit.
Please call the Aim office at (317) 237-6200 to register. 


It wasn’t easy to accomplish given the short time we have together, but we found a way to put a tremendous amount of educational programming into the Aim Ideas Summit. This year’s 31 workshops are diverse and offer a great mixture of technical, nuts and bolts skills, and big picture development and quality of place topics. As always, there will be a lot of Continuing Legal Education credits. For those who attend our extended Early Bird topics, credit will be offered towards your Aim Municipal Management Institute certification. Check frequently for topic descriptions and workshop speakers as they become available in the coming weeks.

Exhibit Hall

More than 130 companies, organizations, and state agencies specializing in mu-nicipal government solutions will be on-hand in the exhibit hall. Make sure to visit their booths to learn what they can offer your city or town and to find innovative technology and resources to take back to your community. The exhibit hall will kick off with the welcome reception on Tuesday and also feature a continental breakfast on Wednesday. This year’s exhibit hall will feature a new, prize-winning opportunity! Have a chat with participating vendors to collect customized poker chips and drop them off at the Aim table to be eligible for some cool swag!
