“The 2007 Neighborhood Planning Conference schedule has depth and ambition, folks will want to attend every session. Let's work together to get neighborhood coverage of the workshops. I would like all of our Neighborhood Association leadership to attend, (8 RNA officers) in order to get saturation and to share knowledge. In addition to the Lunch session, make the last session where people network to collectively implement meaningful action. Deep thanks to each of you for this pioneering event.”
