Our signature programs are designed to strengthen and reinforce the infrastructure of the region's community and economic ecosystem.

Participation is open to the public though space may be limited and fees may apply.
Capacity Building Institute
Our Institute hosts various Communities of Practice cohorts tailored to specific disciplines or professions within community and economic development. Over the series of several trainings, participants learn from instructors and peer-to-peer engagement. It is designed to help practitioners go deeper in their field to refine their expertise and cultivate their networks.
Comprehensive Development Academy
The Academy is a training environment for practitioners and advocates to broaden their understanding of intersectionality within community and economic development. Whether you're an established expert looking to expand your knowledge or an emerging professional just getting started, there is something for everyone to learn and grow.
Beyond our signature programs, we work with a number of our members and other partners to facilitate programming and initiatives that add value to our ecosystem. We use a racial equity framework for all of our work to ensure we center and emphasize the role of equity, accessibility, and opportunity to amplify social justice.
