All sessions will take place at the Sheraton Atlanta. Atlanta is a vital city with ambitious goals for sustaining its urban tree canopy through public and private cooperation.
The ACT meeting agenda on November 17 features research about trees as a tool for community revitalization, nonprofit executive networking, grassroots program models, and NeighborWoods tools for community organizing. The 2008 NeighborWoods Luncheon sponsored by The Home Depot Foundation will recognize NeighborWoods award winners and exemplary nonprofit partnerships.
Geared toward nonprofit executives, volunteer organizers, and community advocates, the ACT Annual Meeting & NeighborWoods Academy is a great way to energize and connect with others working to restore tree canopy and make communities better places to live.
We are grateful for the assistance of The Home Depot Foundation in making this event possible.
