The Strengthening Communities Conference 2017 is bringing together people who are at the heart of community led development in Scotland. It's being held at the Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort on Sept 21-22.
Around 200 volunteers, communities groups, social enterprises, development officers, support agencies and policy staff have already signed up. if you'd like to join us please register soon as places are filling up fast.
HIE, an agency with a unique 50 year history working alongside communities to support social and economic development, is delighted to be hosting this national conference. Come along and help share the wealth of knowledge on community led development which exists in Scotland. Let’s work together to make plans which keep local people at the centre of their own community development.
The format will be a mix of informative presentations covering the policy position, best practice and looking to the future, augmented with ample networking opportunities. In addition there will be a ‘market place’ for exhibiting and inspiring collaboration, innovation and adoption of ideas, all in the pursuit of strengthening communities.
