TOGETHER WE BUILD COMMUNITIES

Community Economic Development

Affordable housing, commercial corridor revitalization, and financial capability services are just a few areas in which the community economic development (CED) industry leads. The CED track serves to bring attendees innovations in the field as well as help you access more tools and resources to accomplish your goals and expand your services.

Organizational Development -
Best Practices

The Organizational Development/Best Practices track’s goal is to help organizations build their capacity to change and achieve greater effectiveness through training and other information that will help them develop, improve, and reinforce strategies, structures, and processes of their organization.

Preventing and Ending Homelessness

The Preventing and Ending Homelessness Track focuses on best practices, collaborations, tools, and resources that support the efforts of local communities to provide services to those with housing needs.

Residential Real Estate Development -
Multi-Family

The multifamily development industry is a fast-moving, twisting track that is difficult to navigate. The Multifamily track provides tools developers need for success in providing affordable housing in our communities.

Residential Real Estate Development - Homeownership/Social and Supportive Services

The opportunity to own a home is key to a successful housing and economic strategy. Owning a home according to one’s budget and when ready is number one for generational wealth building and one’s sense of freedom. The home ownership and social services track is proud to present a robust list of sessions for you to consider led by an impressive list of special guests.
