July 8: Neighborhood Leadership Academy city budget workshop

Be sure to register now for a July 8 workshop offered through NRC’s Neighborhood Leadership Academy! This session is focused on how South Bend’s budget process works, and what it means for our neighborhoods. City CFO John Murphy and City Controller Jennifer Hockenhull will be on hand to guide the discussion.

The public is invited to learn more about how to understand the budget, connect with city leaders and advocate for neighborhood priorities, but registration is required. Seats are limited, so call NRC at 574.287.0425 or email nrcneighbors@gmail.com.

What is the NLA all about? At NRC, we believe there are many leaders in South Bend waiting to be identified and given the tools to create positive change in their neighborhoods.

Empowered residents join neighborhood associations, create community gardens, volunteer in the community, plan block parties, and appreciate the value of a connected community, and help foster the skills and talents in others
