2022 Region VIII Community Action Conference

The 2022 Region 8 Community Action Conference theme is Community Action: Achieving Human Capacity and Community Transformation, where the focus will be on what successful organizations are doing to address community transformation and how to measure long-term success in increasing economic independence of local families. The goals of the annual conference are to engage policy makers, government employees, human service agencies, non-profits, advocates, volunteers and people with low-income in intensive learning, training, planning and peer-to-peer networking around community poverty and economic development issues. We are expecting over 200 attendees from throughout the Rocky Mountain region at the conference.
