Event Details

You are invited to join a targeted site visit for Louisville nonprofits, developers, foundations and civic partners to explore successes and lessons learned in Memphis related to community development and community investment.

Stemming from a conversation hosted by The Federal Reserve Bank and CFL in June, we are planning a road trip to explore lessons that may be relevant and timely for local efforts.  The two-day trip will support building regional connections and further connect local partners committed to community success.  

Anticipated Agenda (all times and sites being finalized)

Nov 13 - leave Louisville approx 7:30am, arrive by 3pm

Site Visit: Community Lift, an intermediary who's working to build up the sophistication and capacity of neighborhood CDCs in Memphis and revitalize communities.

Dinner and networking in Memphis with additional community leaders

Nov 14 - Breakfast and site visit with City Leadership, who's working to develop leaders and organizations in Memphis, and to catalyze collaborative projects for the benefit of the city.

Site visit with BLDG Memphis, who's working to support the development and redevelopment of healthy, vibrant, attractive, and economically sustainable neighborhoods throughout the Memphis region.

Depart Memphis by 12pm for 8pm return to Louisville.

We have a motor coach that can hold 50 partners and expect costs to be limited to the one-night hotel stay (around $175) if we are successful in seeking support to cover other travel and food for attendees.  We are limited to space of one bus and will work to balance participation across sectors to ensure access to participate.  As such, please select only a ticket for your sector.

More detailed information will be provided to those who will be attending and we will work to make all information available broadly upon return for those not able to attend.  Please feel free to forward this invitation if a community partner you work with has not received.

For questions, please contact any one of the organizing team: Jessica Morgan (, Sharon Bird (, Mallory Sanborn (, Trisha Finnegan (, or Virginia Lee (
