(INDIANAPOLIS) - On Friday, August 25, the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) in partnership with Cambridge City Main Street, will host the second in a series of community exchanges aimed at bringing together Indiana Main Street organizations, community leaders and planners, downtown groups, and economic development professionals.

The purpose of the community exchanges are to allow Indiana Main Street communities and other local professionals to network and learn from one another; giving communities an opportunity to discuss issues they face, ways others have resolved some of those issues, and innovative steps communities are taking to address the needs of their organizations, community, and downtowns.

This networking session will be held at The Archive, 33 West Main Street, Cambridge City, IN 47327 and begin at 9:00 a.m. The $25 registration fee includes lunch and all materials. Attendees can expect to hear from several guest speakers, have an opportunity to explore downtown Cambridge City, and network with those in attendance.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Panel discussion about Non-Profit Real Estate Development and Historic Preservation
  • Place Based Economic Development
  • Resilient Downtowns

Attendees do not need to be an Indiana Main Street organization participant or staff member to attend. This exchange will provide information useful to community leaders and planners as well as economic development professionals. No two community exchanges are alike so as to encourage attendance at more than one event.
