2016 Reinventing Our Communities

September 21, 2016 - September 23, 2016

Register now for the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s 2016 conference Reinventing Our Communities: Transforming Our Economies. This national biennial conference will be held Wednesday, September 21, to Friday, September 23, 2016, at the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing. Through a series of exciting and engaging plenary discussions, concurrent sessions, and keynote addresses, the conference will examine how communities can connect people, place, and capital to transform local and regional economies in an inclusive way.

Hear how communities can transform by:

  • connecting people to the global economy;
  • creating places of opportunity that are equitable and benefit all residents; and
  • investing in and leveraging the collective skills, knowledge, and assets of residents.

Come to Philadelphia and experience the resurgence of this postindustrial city, with a special focus on the region’s assets, opportunities, and community development sector. Sign up for the preconference tours that will highlight community development efforts throughout the city. New for 2016 are two off-site learning labs for you to take a deeper dive into either resident engagement strategies or the Community Reinvestment Act. Together, these elements will create an interactive conference that will provide you with plenty of opportunities for networking and will equip you with actionable strategies to take home and implement in your community.

Check out the full agenda on the conference website and register now to reserve your spot!

The Reinventing Our Communities conference is sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Cosponsors include the Penn Institute for Urban Research at the University of Pennsylvania; FHLBank Pittsburgh; and the Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland, Minneapolis, New York, Richmond, and St. Louis.
