Day of education & networking for NC leaders features 30 workshops + exhibits
Registration is open for the 2018 Congress of Neighborhoods at Los Angeles City Hall. Over 800 Neighborhood Council leaders from across the City are expected to attend the annual event, which happens Saturday, September 22nd. Everything is *free* if you RSVP, including admission to over 30 workshops, exhibit tables, catered meals; and parking! Classroom space is limited, so make sure to sign up early to get the classes you want, at www.NCCongressLA.com.
The Congress is the year’s biggest opportunity for Neighborhood Council leaders to get training on skills and subjects key to Neighborhood Council success; network with elected officials and staff from every City department; build relationships with members of other boards; and meet regional and citywide alliances of Neighborhood Councils.
This year’s workshops include courses on what the lifecycle of Community Impact Statements is, and tips for writing CIS with maximum impact; a day-long series on Planning & Land Use topics; discussion sessions about key issues like NC reform and supportive housing; and workshops on everything from event planning to managing difficult people at meetings.
We’re looking forward to seeing you September 22nd at #NCCongressLA!
