The Community Development Society (CDS) is requesting proposals for presentations and posters from researchers, practitioners, and others involved in community work for the Community Development Society 2020 Annual International Conference, July 12-15, 2020 in Fargo, North Dakota, USA.

The conference will explore how community developers, organizers, and leaders pursue local resilience in light of global challenges, and how local actions contribute to global resilience in the face of climate change, refugee migration, workforce and trade disruption, and other challenges.

Proposals related to the conference theme, “Global Challenges, Local Resilience” are encouraged, but all submissions will be given full consideration. Each 60-minute breakout session will include 1-3 accepted presentations. We will contact you regarding how your proposal might fit into these sessions and the overall conference program.

If you have questions or experience technical difficulties submitting your proposal, please contact KP Williams, CDS Vice Chair of Programs – programs@comm-dev.org.
