IAP2 USA partners with the NCoC (National Conference on Citizenship), a nonprofit organization chartered by the US Congress to advance the nation’s civic life to bring your the November webinar. 

NCoC and partners have recently released new research demonstrating the strong connections between civic engagement and economic resilience. The research has surfaced two key findings: a community’s no
nprofit organization infrastructure and social cohesion are both strongly connected to its ability to withstand unemployment during a recession. 

Please welcome webinar panelist Kristi Tate, Director of Community Strategies for NCoC, for this webinar to discuss these findings, and how they illuminate the central roles of social capital and civic health to economic vitality, as well as the implications for practitioners, nonprofit leaders, policymakers and elected officials.

Along with Tate is Mark Wilson, Director
of Civic Learning Initiatives at Auburn University, who is a NCoC partner on their work with Alabama civic health work. Wilson will speak about programs that have really demonstrated the link between civic engagement and economic development, and speak from the practitioner perspective about how this research makes the case for this work. 

This is a great session for any public administrator or communications professional tasked with leading or participating in public meetings or forums.  Space is limited- sign up today!
