Dayton, Ohio will serve as conference host for the third time since its inception more than 20 years ago and the theme, “Reinventing Neighborhoods”, salutes the hard work neighborhood leaders contribute to their communities while providing new and creative mechanisms to address some of the major concerns in neighborhoods today. “We want to honor them, provide support and workshops that will enable them to continue with their efforts and take back a wealth of fresh new initiatives to their communities” says Judy Martinson, Citizen Participation Manager for the City of Dayton.

Between 400 and 500 people from several area states, including Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee are expected to attend the conference in Dayton. The conference is open to the public and will feature a series of workshops, tours and speakers over the course of three days designed to empower residents in conjunction with government to build better, stronger, safer neighborhoods.
