Communication – the means of connecting between people or places. Effective communication strategies within a community create unity, engagement, and an understanding that we all want the best for our neighborhood. Communication is much more than a monthly newsletter or a community council meeting; it is a method of outreach to unengaged but eager citizens, a way to bind us to together, and a tool for solving problems and organizing action.
Tracks for the 2018 Summit will cover progressive levels of communication:
Through the 2018 Neighborhood Summit, we hope to refocus on what communication means and to give participants practical examples and hands-on training for how it can be utilized in our strategies to improve our community.
The Neighborhood Summit is THE annual event which brings together hundreds of community leaders and volunteers, city officials and non-profits in a day long series of seminars and workshops aimed at helping citizens work effectively together to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Last year’s event was attended by over 600 people.
Invest in Neighborhoods’ 16th annual Summit would not be possible without the hard work of our Summit partners: the City of Cincinnati, the Community Building Institute, LISC, our volunteers, and the generosity of our funders: Seasongood, PNC, KeyBank, First Financial, and CDF.
