“Community as Place”
JULY 19-23, 2003
Cornell University
Ithaca, New York, USA

The Community Development Society invites you to join community development practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and citizen leaders from around the world. The theme of the conference is Community as Place. This conference embraces common efforts to foster meaningful collaborations, extend the community development networks, and holistically integrate community-based research, policy, and practice toward the goal of building healthy and sustainable communities of place.

You are invited to submit a proposal sharing your research, practice, or policy work that addresses the changing world of community development. Proposals are due December 15; selections of presentations will be made by January 17. Conference Theme: Place-based communities include attention to social, human, natural, built and financial capital in a balanced and holistic way. We encourage presentations that address the connections between youth, place and community development.

Organizations, chapters, projects, programs, government agencies, tribal units, and businesses are invited to set up a visual display for the duration of the conference. A fee will be charged for both non-profit and commercial/government exhibits. For additional information please contact:
