We are seeking workshop presenters for RNNC 2017!
ATTENTION! Deadline for Workshop Forms has been extended to June 2nd!

NEIGHBORHOODS: Where Life Happens is the theme for the 2017 Regional Neighborhood Network Conference (RNNC), co-hosted by the City of Evansville’s Department of Metropolitan Development (DMD) and United Neighborhoods of Evansville (UNOE).  The 2017 RNNC is a three‐day event that runs from October 5th – 7th, 2017.  The RNNC is a cooperative network of 20+ Midwestern cities and 5 States; Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

The RNNC is a place where community leaders, neighborhood volunteers, corporations, local government agencies, philanthropists, real estate developers and businesses gather to exchange information with one another in order to gain valuable ideas to take back and help improve or transform their own communities. The RNNC features a wide variety of workshops about state of the art approaches to neighborhood improvements, area redevelopments, crime, safety, and public & private investments.  In addition to these informative workshops, the RNNC is a great opportunity to network with your neighboring peers from other States and enjoy Evansville’s great food and entertainment!


Ideally we would like to have a mix of local Evansville experts as well as movers and shakers from other RNNC cities to lead our workshops.

The following workshop tracks are being considered for RNNC 2017:

Community Gardens and Food Stability

Climate, Environment, Sustainability & Green Energy

Planning, (re)Development & Infrastructure

Community Policing and Public Safety

Social Media and Tech Innovations

If you would like to present a workshop that can help our attendees improve their neighborhoods and communities, please fill out the form below. Our tracks are not yet set in stone and we will be happy to consider workshop concepts that fall outside these categories if they fit our theme and purpose.
