Shhhh! It's a secret! Indiana has beaches and a fabulous coastline adjacent to the 8th largest economy in the world. Come to Northwest Indiana for the 2017 MPO Conference and see for yourself where the "crossroads of America" intersects with the "city of broad shoulders"...where industry that supplies the nation has learned to co-exist with a stunning natural environment that was the birthplace of ecology (and the roots of NEPA)...where this neighbor to Chicago has been attracting a new workforce to what the Chicago Tribune called the "Affordable Shore"...and where all of this is quickly becoming a secret no longer.
