15th Annual Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange Conference To Feature Joseph Porcelli
This year's Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will be at the McKimmon Center at 1101 Gorman Street.
The Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange brings together residents from all over the city to meet each other and City staff, share ideas, and work together to strengthen their communities.
The theme of this year's conference is “Communication,” so residents are encouraged to come out and join us in the conversation! The day will start with an exhibitor hall where residents can meet representatives from different City departments and learn how to get more involved. Then residents can pick two sessions to attend centered around “communication.”
Stay for lunch and our keynote speaker, Joseph Porcelli, the Northeast Senior City Strategist and “Professional Neighbor” at Nextdoor.com.
You must be registered in order to attend. Registration will not be accepted on the day of the event. A light breakfast and lunch will be included with the registration fee. The registration fee is $10 for Raleigh residents and $15 for non-Raleigh residents.
