PCRG Community Development Summit: CommUNITY

May 24 - May 25

CommUNITY: The Power of People in Action examines how people take concepts, build support, and put them into action. Community development leaders across the spectrum want to know how to smartly effect change, in every area that impacts our communities and their people. We seek lasting change that pays dividends to residents, entrepreneurs, responsible developers and investors. We want to break the cycle of triage management and create true wealth and opportunity. At the 2017 Community Development Summit, we will lift up models that have successfully achieved these goals.

For more information on the Summit Program, please visit the Summit website at pcrg.org/conference/

The Summit will take place on May 24 and 25 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in beautiful downtown Pittsburgh. Exciting sessions on a range of topics relative to community development practitioners are currently being confirmed with our presenters, and the list will be released on our website as soon as possible. We invite you to come and examine with us how people take concepts, build support, and put them into action.

The registration fee provides attendees with access to two full days of conference activities – plenary sessions, breakout sessions, the exhibitor hall, materials, and more – as well breakfast, lunch, and heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks at an evening cocktail reception.

Scholarships for the Summit are generously supported by a number of local foundations and contributions of excess tickets provided by Summit sponsors. Awards are determined at the discretion of PCRG and the foundations who underwrite scholarships. Scholarship applicants should submit applications for themselves online.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn from, connect with, and grow alongside other members of the community development industry. Visit our conference website for more information! This years theme of CommUNITY: The Power of People in Action, is defined below:
