Don’t Miss Reclaiming Vacant Properties

The National Vacant Properties Campaign’s second national conference, Reclaiming Vacant Properties: Building Leadership to Restore Communities, will help leaders with diverse backgrounds – residents, community development practitioners, elected officials, the financial community, safety professionals, academics, real estate professionals, and many others – to make our neighborhoods stronger and healthier. 

The conference, cosponsored by the Louisville Metro Government and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, will be held June 1-3 in Louisville, Kentucky. An all-star cast of invited speakers includes Carol Coletta of CEOs for Cities, Marc H. Morial of the Urban League, Bruce Rasher of CB Richard Ellis, Inc., Dan Kildee of the Genesee County Land Bank, and Louisville’s own Mayor Abramson.

If you register before April 30, you’ll save $100. More than 600 people attended the first conference in 2007. Don’t miss the opportunity to network and share knowledge with those who have been working to create opportunity from abandonment!
