About this event

The 5th annual Asset Based Community Development Symposium is a free, full-day celebration on the theme of belonging. There will be community art, networking, food, activities, and so much more! We’re especially excited to welcome keynote speaker Jon Massimi, and we look forward to hearing your stories as well.

We encourage community members to gather and participate in this amazing event as we focus on both our individual and community gifts and assets. Together we can build a stronger community where all feel like they belong.
