Our community is hosting the 39th Annual Conference on Neighborhood Concerns here in Eugene from May 21 to May 24, 2014. The annual event brings together community leaders and active neighborhood participants from all over the world to share ideas, inspiration and best practices for creating thriving communities.
This year, the conference will be a true Eugene celebration, highlighting local organizations and improvement programs that serve our community. Learn about the opportunities available right here at home from local presenters and find out how other communities are accomplishing shared goals in the areas of safety, community building, local food systems, transportation, democracy and social equity. Attend one of the many workshops that will be offered during the conference (see the workshop description guide) or go on a Neighborhood Pride tour. Attend a special screening of “Growing Cities” or “Dreammakers.”
Lane County residents can register at the discounted rate of $100 which includes the opening celebration on Wednesday night, all conference meals, keynote speakers, workshops, and tours. This fee is waived for conference volunteers and scholarships may be available to qualified people who are actively involved with their neighborhood association.
The registration deadline is May 2, 2014. Some activities are offered on a space available basis so sign up as soon as possible.
