Webinar on civic infrastructure and asset-based community development

The National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) has brought back its popular Learning Circles. On Wednesday, March 9, round one kicked off with a focus on civic infrastructure and asset-based community development—two concepts used in NAAEE's Community Engagement Guidelines for Excellence.

The session was moderated by Matt Leighninger, head of Democracy Innovation with NCoC. Guests included the ABCD Institute's John McKnight and Howard University law professor Harold McDougall. They discussed civic infrastructure as the scaffolding that provides all the ways people engage in public life and how people and their organizations can work together to strengthen it.
