October Neighborhoods Conference At the Convention Center

The Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods announced its 5th Annual Neighborhoods Conference for Saturday, October 22, 2005 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Nashville Convention Center. The conference topic will be "Celebrating Safe Neighborhoods," and both Mayor Bill Purcell and Police Chief Ronal Serpas will address the group.

I attended last year's Neighborhoods Conference and found it very helpful, especially as I was moving to assist in the founding of Salemtown Neighbors. Besides a free lunch while listening to the keynotes, there are also workshops, speakers, booths for the various Metro Departments, panel discussions and networking opportunities. I highly recommend this conference to anyone even remotely concerned with happenings in their neighborhoods. This Mayor's neighborhood focus is truly reflected in the resources he provides neighbors at this conference.
