Community Connections Conference

The conference is an annual free event with exciting learning labs, speakers, panel discussions and fascinating exhibitors. NCR thanks everyone who participated in the 7th annual Community Connections Conference. On February 10, 2018, just under 700 residents, elected leaders, and representatives from nonprofits and community organizations came together to learn about civic engagement opportunities, community partnerships, social justice initiatives and ways to shape local government policies.

For the 2018 conference, you can view the workshop descriptions and program on the conference programming page. If you would like to request materials from one of the workshops, please email [email protected] with the name of the workshop. NCR will try to obtain the materials from the conference workshop presenters but cannot guarantee that all workshops will have this available.

If you enjoyed the topics of this year's conference workshops, you may also be interested in NCR's community engagement learning lab series! These free workshops focus on how to effectively engage Minneapolis's unique cultural communities.
