What Works! Workshop addresses the future of community development in the Northeast

“What Works!” will bring together practitioners, researchers, educators, and decisionmakers to explore the opportunities and challenges inherent in promoting entrepreneurship as a vehicle for rural economic development in the Northeast.  Learn new skills, celebrate successes, and explore new possibilities for collaboration across institutional and political boundaries.  This event will be the first step in the development of a new regional plan of work that capitalizes on strengths, provides opportunities for future research, and will leverage resources in the coming years.

What Works! is scheduled for March 30–April 1, 2011, at the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel in Philadelphia, PA.  The deadline for workshop proposals is October 3, 2010.  Proposals may be submitted online.  Information on session length, format, and topics are available at the proposal submission website.

Submission of a proposal is not a guarantee of its acceptance.  All proposals will be reviewed by the program committee. Notification of proposal status will be provided by November 15. Presenters may be required to submit an electronic copy of their presentation for inclusion in the proceedings.

Contact Mary Peabody at the University of Vermont for more information.
