Each year, MICD plans and manages four to five “Institute Sessions” held throughout the country. More than 1,200 mayors and hundreds of design experts have participated in MICD. Each session brings together a small group of mayors, along with her or his most critical city design challenge, with a small group of city design and development experts in a single location for two and one half days of concentrated discussion focused on finding design solutions to these real-life projects. In addition, MICD provides ongoing educational opportunities for mayors, including virtual seminars, alumni technical assistance, and a fellowship program.
