"NUSA’s annual conference provides attendees with opportunities to:
celebrate neighborhood successes, network and share experiences with
neighborhood leaders and volunteers from across the United States and
internationally, and attend workshops to discuss neighborhood concerns
and learn about neighborhood best practices. This year’s conference
theme “Better Together – Strong Neighborhoods, Strong City” resonates
throughout the conference."

"Workshop tracks focus on information to help build strong
neighborhoods by : developing action steps for sustainability, using
collaborative partnerships that reshape neighborhood success, building
a creative economy, forging safe and prepared communities, pursuing
healthier lifestyles, partnering with youth to expand leadership,
redefining neighborhood stabilization, organizing for social justice
and change, and creating community media."
