The 2018 MACDC Convention


Saturday, October 20th

9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Hynes Convention Center


We provide free breakfast and lunch, free child care, language interpretation, and whatever else is needed, so we can welcome everyone in our movement. 
MACDC is committed to removing any and every obstacle to your participation.
We are still finalizing the agenda, but we already know it is going to be fun, educational, inspiring, and impactful.
  • Gubernatorial Forum: We have invited all the major party candidates for Governor to join us to field our questions about their policy agenda;
  • Workshops on key community development priorities such as affordable housing, economic development, racial equity, community health, and community organizing; 
  • Awards to CDCs that have leveraged the Community Investment Tax Credit program to launch, or expand a program that is making a difference in the lives of people and communities;
  • Music and poetry that express our core values and inspire us to work for an inclusive and equitable society; 
  • The “CDC Roll Call,” where every CDC in attendance shares an exciting achievement from the past year, thereby demonstrating the diversity and scale of our collective impact; 
  • Testimonials from CDC community leaders that will remind us why we do this work; and 
  • Networking opportunities throughout the day that enable you to meet your colleagues from across the state.
