News release from the City of Fort Wayne:
Mayor Henry commends community leaders who participated in neighborhood conference in Kentucky
(October 5, 2015) – Mayor Tom Henry today praised the efforts of a group of local neighborhood leaders and association presidents who attended this past weekend’s Regional Neighborhood Network Conference (RNNC) in Bowling Green, Ky.
The RNNC is comprised of neighborhood representatives from Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee. It’s designed for grassroots, corporate, government, foundation, faith-based and non-profit leaders who are dedicated to improving the quality of life in their communities.
The conference offered community leaders the opportunity to obtain training and access information needed to reinforce their leadership skills and make sound suggestions to city government.
The Urban Enterprise Association provided grants that made it possible for many of the neighborhood leaders to attend.
The City of Fort Wayne most recently hosted the RNNC conference at the Grand Wayne Center in 2012.
Fort Wayne is home to more than 400 neighborhood associations. Mayor Henry engages with neighborhood leaders and encourages residents to provide feedback that will help city government better serve the entire community.
