Community economic development—implemented collaboratively, creatively and with justice—is critical to CCDA’s vision of flourishing communities.
You are invited to breakfast, networking and inspiration for implementing CCDA Market Solutions in your community.
Our time together will include an introduction to CCDA’s Market Solutions initiative as well as impactful speakers who are living out the CCDA Market Solutions vision in their communities.
Our keynote speakers are Pamela Moore, CEO of the Detroit Public Schools Foundation (DPSF), and Ryan VerWys, CEO of Inner City Christian Federation (ICCF).
Moore helped turn around the City of Detroit workforce development program before joining DPSF. DPSF makes grants to Detroit public schools in six areas including Career Pathways.
ICCF, a long-time CCDA member in existence for 43 years, has a current initiative to restore 177 distressed homes in Grand Rapids in addition to their ongoing programs that utilize CCDA principles.
All proceeds from the Market Solutions Breakfast will support the CCDA Market Solutions initiative.
