Gathering 2021 Registration OpeN: Events planned for may 3-5
With great optimism, we are opening registration for the 2021 Northwest Community Land Trust Coalition Gathering, scheduled for May 3-5, 2021.
We are currently planning a hybrid event with some in person attendance as well as some participating virtually. We are also prepared to pivot to a completely virtual event or to postpone, if needed. That decision will be made in early February.
We hope you will consider joining us either in person or virtually for another year of education, comradery; professional development and technical assistance for Community Land Trust organizations and affiliated partners. We plan to gather at Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites in Ashland, Oregon, hosted by NeighborWorks Umpqua.
This year’s gathering will feature sessions on messaging, advocacy, homeowner engagement, scaling up your CLT, disaster recovery, donated homes and much more! With the inclusion of experts from State Housing Finance Agency Commissions, the HUD Region 10, an expanded lenders panel, as well as the return of the famous bocce ball tournament, this year’s gathering is one you don’t want to miss!
