Learning ABCD: Conference or Videos/Workbooks?
I would encourage you to attend the NeighborhoodsUSA (NUSA) conference next spring in Eugene, Oregon. (See NUSA.org) NUSA is a national non-profit dedicated to improving neighborhoods through community mobilization and leadership capacity building and improving partnerships and collaboration between community sectors. The conference is ABCD focused, with John McKnight having provided a keynote and a workshop last year. The conference is very affordable (225.00 for three days of workshops and activities and networking and food and fun) and is open to all -- residents, government, non-profits, all interested sectors of a community. This year's keynote will be Jim Diers who is faculty at the ABCD Institute and a wonderful presenter and ABCD practitioner.
I am on the NUSA board of directors and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
