Charlotte, NC — Take advantage of a rare opportunity to attend a City of Charlotte meeting where you set the agenda! During the 2017 Neighborhood Exchange & Leadership Awards, more than 250 Charlotte residents will have the opportunity to determine the discussion topics and drive the conversation about ways to strengthen our neighborhoods. Scheduled to be held 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 23 at the Charlotte Convention Center, attendees at the free event will include elected officials, community leaders and residents, and staff from local government agencies and nonprofits.

How will it work? It's simple and easy. During the morning brainstorming session, attendees will propose ideas or topics to be considered for discussion among the day's breakout groups. From discussions around farmers markets and bicycle lanes to police community relations, the group will select the discussion topics that matter most to them and then the conversations begin! Your input can help strengthen our neighborhoods, enhance programs offered by the City and its partners, and spark ideas for new initiatives. 

Information tables featuring neighborhood services provided by City and County agencies and resource partners will also be available.

Attendees are also invited to an awards luncheon to celebrate neighborhoods, nonprofits and business partners working to keep our neighborhoods strong.
