Development of Agenda 360’s goals and key strategies for achieving them involved hundreds of civic leaders who served on action teams and thousands of Greater Cincinnatians who engaged through community-based dialogues and online surveys. 


Implementation of the plan is led by professional staff at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and a network of leaders throughout the region.
