On May 14th and 15th, 2014, join community and economic development professionals, lenders, public officials, developers, planners, and others passionate about building and sustaining healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities for the Fourth Annual Community Development Summit. With a theme of Reaching Across Boundaries, sessions and workshops will highlight cross-sector and regional collaboration in community planning, land recycling, affordable housing, transit-oriented development, and neighborhood revitalization. Quickly becoming the premier community development convening for the region, the Community Development Summit annually attracts more than 500 leaders from across Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Illinois, and other surrounding states to downtown Pittsburgh for two days of learning, networking, and sharing best practices.
This year, the Summit will feature keynote presentations from Shelley Poticha, director of the National Resources Defense Council’s (NRDC) Urban Solutions program and former director of the Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and David Rusk, urban policy consultant and author of Cities without Suburbs and Inside Game/Outside Game.
A Call for Presenters has been issued and session proposals will be accepted until February 14th, 2014. To review the session proposal criteria or to submit a session, visit the Summit webpage.
The Community Development Summit is brought to you by the Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (PCRG) in collaboration with the Urban Land Institute – Pittsburgh District Council, and is sponsored by PNC Bank.
