I will be in Toronto this afternoon chairing a Board meeting at the Canadian Urban Institute. By sheer coincidence, it will be my last meeting as Board Chair and the inaugural meeting for our new CEO Fred Eisenberger. I am confident that Fred will do a great job at CUI. He brings just the right mix of urban leadership experience, a constructive temperament and an intellectual curiosity about what makes cities work. The only adjustment for Fred may be getting used to meetings that are unfailingly thoughtful, civil and productive…Please join me in wishing Fred every success in this important new challenge.
