7th Annual Land Bank Conference

Event Date: October 14-16, 2012

Category: Community Progress Event




Thank you to all of the speakers, sponsors and participants for a great conference! Check out the presentations here.


If America’s cities and towns are to realize their greatest potential as attractive and welcoming – as drivers of the new American economy – they must be able to repurpose their vacant, abandoned, and foreclosed properties. A critical approach to this mission is the development of land banks: public authorities created to efficiently acquire, hold, manage and develop tax foreclosed property.

Whether you hail from an urban land bank, rural county government, a for-profit developer or anywhere in between, we invite you to join us to share your successes, brainstorm new ideas, and learn from experts in the field at the 2012 Land Bank Conference. We take pride in our strong educational content and the variety of sessions that we offer.

The annual Land Bank conference attracts the nation’s top land bank professionals, including land bank staff and board directors; for-profit and nonprofit developers; community foundation staff; professionals in real estate, greening initiatives and neighborhood revitalization; staff members from local and state government; and elected officials.

We look forward to seeing you in Kalamazoo, MI on October 14-16. Watch here and in your e-mail boxes for upcoming information, or contact Courtney Knox by email at cknox@communityprogress.net or phone her at 877-542-4842 x20.
