CSC Executive Director to Speak at Regional Asset Building Summit - Linn, Benton, Lincoln County

Neighborhood Partnerships will host a Regional Asset Building Summit June 13, at Linn Benton Community College.

The event officially begins at 12 noon but feel free to join us at 11:30 to network!

Are you concerned about the financial security of your employees, neighbors, clients, children, and friends? Do you worry about the number of people living paycheck to paycheck without the resources to absorb everyday emergencies? Do you wish you knew more about what was happening and about strategies that you can implement or support that will build a stronger, more resilient local economy?

Please join your fellow community leaders for a lunchtime discussion of the local, state, and national trends that affect the financial security of Linn, Benton, and Lincoln County families. Come prepared to learn about the approaches, tools, and strategies that have been developed and meet the local partners that are using them. From workforce development to financial products, from home ownership to credit building, we know there are things we can do to build stronger households and a more vibrant community. And, come prepared to share your own tools, strategies, and ideas with others as we work to build a network for resource sharing and action.

Lunch will be served. 

Speakers include Martha Lyon, Executive Director of the Community Services Consortium, and regional economists, Patrick O’Connor and Erik Knoder. Panelists include Brigetta Olson, Emily Reiman and Jill Winsor.
