Neighborhood Summit 2019


Join us on November 9th, 2019 for the Neighborhood Summit. This year’s theme is Building Neighborhood Leadership. Learn from subject experts and your peers on how to strengthen your communities, engage with your neighbors, communicate effectively, and plan for the future. Registration is FREE and spots are limited, so register today!

Why attend?

  • Meet and interact with neighbors from your city and other nearby ones.  Learn about their neighborhood challenges (often VERY similar to ones we face in our own communities!) and how they worked through them.
  • Leave inspired with great ideas from subject experts and your peers that you can implement in your neighborhoods, not to mention great giveaways, and awesome raffle prizes!
  • Hear from amazing speakers with real experience and great insight into neighborhoods!
