After the success of our partner event last year, TACDC will again be holding the Texas Community Economic Development Summit virtually as part of Resilient Communities | The National Forum.  


We are joining forces with the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations and other peer associations from across the country to bring you collaborative plenary sessions and national level speakers, as well as Texas specific workshops. 


The forum will begin with two days of collaborative content from October 4-5, followed by three days of Texas focused programming from October 6-8.  Last year, this partnership convened over 2,100 participants from round the nation, including 151 from Texas, representing 96 organizations throughout our state.
