Mayor’s Neighborhood Engagement Office -City of New Orleans -Neighborhood Summit

Dear All,

I hope this email finds everyone well. I am writing to personally invite you all to be part of this year’s Neighborhood Summit on Saturday, December 2, 2017. Please see attached flyer for more information.

I know some of you have already registered. I am asking that you please share and extend this invitation with all of your contacts.

Neighborhood Summit (Saturday, December 2, 2017)

Over the past six years, Neighborhood Engagement has produced the  Neighborhood Summit, our one-day professional development conference for residents. The annual event brings neighborhood leaders and City agencies together to share information, develop new skills, and strengthen their relationships. This day-long event promotes meaningful partnership between residents and local government, partnerships that when supported have the power to weaken entrenched cynicism and disengagement, providing a different paradigm for the public working with government. The Summit also serves as the  year-end event, celebrating the work and initiatives of the Neighborhood Engagement Office and our partners.  This year’s theme Celebrating 300 years of Resilient Neighborhoods: Laying a Strong Foundation for the Future is centered on celebrating the impact and investment that neighborhood leaders have contributed to build a more resilient city. As we approach the City’s 300 anniversary, we want to acknowledge how far our neighborhoods have come and focus strengthening resident’s capacity to build a stronger more resilient city.

Please REGISTER TODAY if you have not done so yet.

See you all then!!!
