During the European Renaissance, society saw remarkable progress as old ways of thinking were questioned and individuals were challenged to great achievement, much of which endures today. In many of our communities and regions, present day leaders and residents face similar challenges to either move beyond old ways of thinking or face a severely diminished future.  Places that have created their own renaissance can provide lessons to benefit us all.


The 2014 Annual Meeting of the Community Development Society will focus on effective community development strategies, programs, and policies --- fostered by CD practitioners, academics, elected officials, development organizations, organized citizens and motivated individuals --- meant to inspire a Renaissance in communities around the world.


Please view the detailed Call for Abstracts that includes a detailed description of conference themes here.  We invite your presentations, workshops and discussions of successful and innovative approaches to solving development issues in communities, large and small, in the US or internationally to share with your colleagues, new and  emerging scholars, students and others in Dubuque.
