An innovative conference focusing on community development

Getting it Done - Building Strong Communities in a Changing World was the theme of the 2nd gathering of the Institute for Comprehensive Community Development in Chicago.  Over 800 delegates participated in this two day gathering which focused on community development, neighbourhood revitalization and changes in the global community.

There are many lessons to be learned and to share as we all work toward more vibrant and resilient communities.
