Nixon and Reagan are full of crucial lessons for righteous activism. What lies ahead in California for community development and where can one get practical useful knowledge?
Join us in Los Angeles for the 2017 Teaching and Learning Conference, CCEDA’s hallmark event that brings together community economic development practitioners, funders, policymakers, and advocates from across California for a full day of conversation and collaboration. This year’s conference will focus on proposed changes in federal and state policy, anticipated impacts for the community economic development field, and how we can address these challenges together in the months ahead. Speakers and panelists will focus on timely issues including federal community economic development finance programs, tax reform, the future of the Community Reinvestment Act, new state financing tools including Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts (EIFDs) and Community Revitalization and Investment Authorities (CRIAs), and California’s Cap and Trade program.
Our luncheon speaker is a nationally recognized leader and activist Gordon Chin, a CCEDA founder, who will address meaningful and positive activity in which we can be involved. In addition to a strong program this year, the conference will offer networking opportunities with leaders in the field, allowing participants to meet and discuss challenges and opportunities with colleagues across the state. Finally, we will honor Marva Smith Battle-Bey, one of CCEDA’s founding members and longtime board chair.
