Event description

Description

The City of Round Rock is proud to host the Texas Neighborhood Services Symposium. This free symposium will cover the areas of neighborhood services and community engagement. Several cities have staff dedicated to these functions however, there is not a formal organization or conference for us to attend and network. The symposium will educate participants about community/neighborhood engagement philosophies and cutting-edge programs. One of the desired outcomes of the symposium is to determine if there is interest in establishing a working group or association that can continue to help each other and improve neighborhood engagement between Texas municipalities.


The event features a catered breakfast and lunch. If you have any dietary restrictions please contact us. The event is limited to the first 70 attendees. We ask that no more than three staffers attend from each city. There is also an option social hour offered after the symposium.


Please contact Joe Brehm with any questions Jbrehm@roundrocktexas.gov or 512-341-3148.

Each City has that one burning issue they would like advice on. How do I get more residents to attend a neighborhood meeting?
