The New Orleans Neighborhood Summit is a one-day professional development conference for Orleans Parish neighborhood associations and members, which offers skills development workshops, City info sessions, great food, and more.
The 2014 Neighborhood Summit was held in partnership with Neighborhoods Partnership Network (NPN) on Saturday, November 8th at Dillard University - Professional Schools Building. Mayor Mitch Landrieu welcomed guests with welcome remarks.
During the day, attendees participated in six skill-building workshops ranging from "Organizing an Action Campaign" to "Multiple Lines of Defense - Storm-Water Management." Over 20 City departments/agencies and local partners visited summit attendees during the lunch hour Resource Fair. Also, attendees participated in four discussion panels that included NOLA FOR LIFE: The Group Violence Reduction Strategy and the Neighborhood Capacity Building Initiative.
