What is Destination: Vibrant Communities?

Destination: Vibrant Communities is a full day of interactive workshops designed to advance the community development industry and is relevant for all staff levels. Learn best practices, innovative ideas and engage with peers while you choose the content that best suits your interests and organization's needs. 

We choose topics based on member feedback, needs and industry trends, and structure the day to best utilize your time and resources. Workshops are designed to be hands-on and interactive, so you leave with a working plan or ideas that could work in your communities. 

This training is appropriate for management, experienced and new employees. Organizations sending more than one staff member will receive 50% off each additional registration with the purchase of one at the early-bird or regular rate.
