The Future of Northern New England's Smaller Post-industrial Cities, 2014 Regional Convening
Meetings will be held three times a year. While most meetings will be held at the Federal Reserve Bank, reasonable efforts will be made to hold at least one meeting annually out in the District area site, which would permit a review of community development efforts in the area. Agendas will be developed jointly by the Council members and Reserve Bank staff.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston's New England Community Development Advisory Council (CDAC), in partnership with the Laconia Area Community Land Trust, Granite United Way, and the City of Laconia, NH, cordially invites you to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston's 2014 New England Community Development Advisory Council's Regional Convening.
The 2014 Regional Convening will include members of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston leadership, the New England Community Development Advisory Council, New Hampshire's state & local governments, regional and community-based organizations, and private-sector partners. We will convene in Laconia, New Hampshire, for an interactive, cross–sector discussion that includes the following:
- An economic update by Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President Eric Rosengren;
- A moderated discussion of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston's research on post-industrial smaller cities and the potential for replication of the Federal Reserve's Working Cities Challenge in other New England communities; and
- A presentation on NH's Universal Children's Savings Account model championed by state representative and education committee chairperson Mary Gile.
