It takes a village! Together, we can all join together to learn more about local life at the upcoming City of Auburn Neighborhood Conference on August 21. Make sure you register online to join. See you at the Harris Center and Frank Brown Recreation Center!
More on the conference
This year marks the very first City of Auburn Neighborhood Conference. It comes inspired by an important goal: to better the lives of those in our community.
So, the organizers have decided to hold a conference series, following different topics involving Auburn neighborhoods. Ultimately, these talks will give residents information on how to advocate for themselves and their community. That way, they can take charge of their neighborhoods!
About the work sessions
During the Auburn Neighborhood Conference, you can attend a variety of work sessions. They will cover these topics:
- Stormwater Impacts on Local Water Quality;
- Engaging Your Neighborhood;
- Neighborhood Safety & Awareness;
- Creating a Viable Community;
- Improving Quality of Life through Public Works; and
- Being an Environmental Steward in Your Neighborhood.
The conference will also finish off with a keynote from two speakers. The first, Kristen Reeder, sits on the Leadership Lee County Board of Directors and works as the City of Auburn’s Human Resources Director. The second, Rene Waldrop, is the director of local nonprofit Our House. Lunch will be provided!
Remember: you must register to attend this conference! You can do that for free here. Registration ends on August 10, and space is limited!
Each participant can select three work session options during the conference, which they will select during the registration process.
Additionally, make sure that you’ve gone to the right address for your registered session! The conference takes place at the Frank Brown Recreation Center at 235 Opelika Road and The Harris Center at 425 Perry St.
