And please Save the Date! Friday, November 7 is our Annual Meeting. This is a free event this year to be held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond Baltimore Branch. Our keynote speaker is Joe McNeely, Board member of the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations (NACEDA) and Executive Director of the Central Baltimore Partnership.
This issue of our e-newsletter provides the details of our strategic priorities moving forward. CDN conducted a comprehensive strategic planning process during the summer and fall of 2013. In addition to the name change and mission revisions, the Board of Directors determined four major strategic priorities. We have now been able to get those priorities funded, working groups initiated, and so these priorities will be implemented. The purpose of these priorities is to strengthen the community development industry in Maryland. This e-newsletter details what the strategic priorities are and how you can get involved.
