National Leadership and Education

Community Progress serves as the hub of a vibrant and growing national community of practice. Our leadership and education programming supports and connects public, private, and community leaders who work tirelessly to tackle the challenges of vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties.


We equip these leaders with critical skillsets and help them to stay abreast of new trends and best practices in the field. We also help them to build productive relationships and collaborations within and across departments, organizations, and communities. Since our founding in 2010, we have reached tens of thousands of people across the United States through our educational offerings.
