The Community Building Institute (CBI) is hosting two seminars open to the public dealing with issues of community and a sense of place. Reservation deadline for both is Nov. 16.

“Providing Services in a Place-Based Environment” is being held Nov. 29 from 8:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m. and Nov. 30 from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the Schiff Family Conference Center. This training is designed to help human service organizations and institutions learn how to connect service delivery with community development efforts.

Pickett Slater Harrington of CBI will identify successful initiatives throughout the country, provide examples of funding models and discuss emerging evaluation methods. Cost for the seminar is $195.

“The Pros and Cons of Community Capacity Building under the Place Matters Model” is part of CBI’s Peer Learning Luncheon series and will be held Nov. 30 from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in the Schiff Family Conference Center. As the Place Matters model of building stronger neighborhoods gains momentum, many community-based organizations are faced with the challenge of reevaluating the services they provide. This informal gathering allows those in community work to share local best practices over a box lunch. The cost for this luncheon is $20.
