Legacy Project Fall Professional Development

October 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Community Building

During a time when individuals seem more connected to devices then to their neighborhood, creating connections with and in our communities can be a daunting task. Join the Legacy Project for the 2019 half day seminar, Community Building. This seminar will focus on how to ensure that the building blocks of a solid community are in place before a divisive issue arises, how to respond to residents and stakeholders during a challenge, and how to rebuild a community after a crisis. Kim Morreale McAuliffe will begin the seminar with a discussion of the role of strategic communications in building a community –before, after, and during a crisis or conflict. Representatives from the City of Aurora, City of Evanston and Village of Oak Park will join Kim in a panel discussion to give real life examples of the role of community building plays in preparing for, responding to and recovering from a community challenge. Continue the conversation at an optional lunch following the seminar. Register today!
