Build a better neighborhood: Come to the Neighborhood SummitThe Civic League's Neighborhood Summit fosters relationships among community leaders by providing them with a forum to meet, exchange ideas and explore opportunities for collaboration. Participants can attend workshops on topics including Meeting the Changing Needs of Residents; Advancing into the 21st Century with Technology; Developing a Deeper Understanding of Regional Issues and How They Affect Your Neighborhood; Creating Civic Organizations that Last; and Getting Organized for Lobbying and Advocacy Efforts.
Attendance at last year's Summit topped 500 and included residents representing community-based organizations, neighborhood associations and civic groups from the 10-county Atlanta region (Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties), as well as professional "community-builders" from the business, philanthropic, nonprofit and public sectors.
Major sponsors for the 2010 Neighborhood Summit include the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta and the Neighborhood Fund. Visit the website, www.neighborhoodsummit.org.
