Information about how to join our boards, commissions and panels, and engage with local leaders will be available at all New Albany 101 events.

The event, which was an initiative of the IDEA Implementation Panel, featured music, dance, spoken word, poetry, food trucks and more. But more importantly, it was an opportunity for New Albany to show the rest of Central Ohio how community connects us here!
