The conference will explore how:

  • urban demographics are changing,

  • new and proposed regulations will benefit consumers and communities,
  • a job-ready workforce is being developed,
  • brownfields and vacant land are being used in innovative ways,
  • manufacturing can strengthen urban economies,
  • successful foreclosure prevention programs are serving homeowners,
  • resilient cities are attracting young, educated professionals and the businesses seeking their talent, and
  • foundations are adopting new approaches and strategies, and
  • much more!

You also don't want to miss this opportunity to network with leaders in the community development industry and engage in stimulating discussions on ways to leverage cities' assets to create new economic activity and spur innovation.
