taft mckinstryTaft McKinstry participated in the 2013 Commerce Lexington's Leadership Visit to Omaha. The Bluegrass delegation heard from key Omaha leaders and looked at what has made the city an attractive place for business and industry, young people, startups, high-tech, major events like the College World Series, arts and culture, and more.

Thought to be the longest-running and largest inter-city visit of its kind among chambers and economic development groups, Commerce Lexington Inc.'s annual Leadership Visit is a cauldron of big ideas, strategies, and partnerships. The Leadership Visit is designed as a learning opportunity for community leaders to study other cities and to apply the best of what they see and hear to the Bluegrass Region. The group also examines challenges in the Bluegrass, what is working well at home, and ways to improve.

Over the years, Bluegrass leaders have visited such cities as Baltimore, Maryland; Greenville, South Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; Madison, Wisconsin; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Mobile, Alabama; Portland, Oregon; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Austin, Texas.
