We all have a stake in the economic development moves in play – both the large and the smaller – in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County – but who is at the table? How can the ordinary business person or entrepreneur have a voice? Find out at the Second Annual Pittsburgh Collective Community Impact Forum, in partnership with Point Park University, on October 12. Sponsored in part by UPMC, Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, Idea Foundrey, Flexable LLC, Point Park University Rowland School of Business and Department of Community Engagement.
This year's theme is Innovation in Planning – Tools for Community Economic Development. The Forum features about a dozen breakout speakers who are addressing various aspects of community planning, community wealth-building through social capital, advocacy, diversity, the role of faith-based organizations in community revitalization, and more. It’s being held in conjunction with the American Planning Association’s National Community Planning Month.
The event brings together over 100 entrepreneurs, business owners, public officials, and community and economic development professionals. The Forum takes place at Point Park University from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on October 12. Registration is $55.00 for the full session or $20.00 for the morning or afternoon session. Full registration includes continental breakfast and lunch.
The Forum focuses professional development content heavily on entrepreneurs. It is vitally important they build strategic partnerships, be involved in community engagement, and assist in neighborhood planning.
The full program is 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and registration is $55.00. Attendees may instead opt to participate in just the morning or the afternoon sessions for $20.00.
