Thread: Community development seminars

    Community development seminars

    My director wants me to take a community development/economic development seminar in 2001. Any suggestions? I don't know of many. What's good and worth traveling to?

    I've taken several of the CUED courses. The quality is mixed. Real Estate Redevelopment and Development Finance were very good. NDC has some excellent ED finance courses as well. I'm not sold on AEDC's courses.

    Another option might be national conferences. CUED has an annual ED Summit in February. The Americn Planning Association conference in March has some useful sessions.

    I would be interested in the NDC course experience. I work in redevelopment. I already have an MPA and am looking to supplement without going back and getting an MBA. Are there any suggestions.
