Reinventing Older Communities: Bridging Growth and Opportunity is a national community development conference hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia that will be held Monday, May 12, to Wednesday, May 14, 2014, at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.

The sixth biennial conference will examine how communities can promote economic growth in ways that benefit all residents. Hundreds of researchers, business and nonprofit leaders, community development practitioners, funders, and state and local government representatives are expected to attend the conference.

“We’re learning that the strongest communities and regions are those that create opportunities for all residents,” said Theresa Y. Singleton, vice president and Community Affairs officer at the Philadelphia Fed. “This year’s Reinventing Older Communities conference will explore how communities can pursue growth and development in ways that enhance the lives of people across socioeconomic levels.”

Speakers at the conference will include Raj Chetty, William Henry Bloomberg Professor of Economics, Harvard University; Angela Glover Blackwell, founder and CEO of PolicyLink; Manuel Pastor, Director of the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity, University of Southern California; and more.

Topics will include

  • How entrepreneurs are reinventing cities
  • Changing demographics and the impact on America’s urban renewal
  • Connecting hard-to-serve populations and jobs
  • Exporting cities in the global economy 
  • Sustainable and green practices that benefit low-income communities
  • Innovative plans that prepare communities for natural disasters …and much more.

Communities flourish when businesses, nonprofits, and governments meet and exchange ideas. Register today to be a part of this conversation.
