Join the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and its cosponsors for the sixth biennial Reinventing Older Communities conference May 12 to 14 in Philadelphia. This conference will explore strategies to bridge growth and opportunity in communities and feature discussions and debates on the best ways to ensure that the benefits gained through economic recovery are widely shared.

Sponsors are preparing three days of plenary sessions, breakouts and keynote addresses designed to answer the question: How are communities capitalizing on economic development

Participants will also have opportunities for some on-site learning. This year’s conference includes four optional tours and activities: Two tours highlight redevelopment efforts in Philadelphia’s Logan neighborhood, or in Camden, NJ; the third tour gives attendees an overview of economic development efforts and a sampling of the delicious fare in the Reading Terminal Market. The fourth tour gives attendees a chance to go on a “Rocky Run” to the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
