Save the Date for the 2016 Summit!

28 Jan

Greetings! 2016 is in full swing and so is planning for our 6th Annual Summit. Building from last year’s theme, this year we focus on The Power of PLACE – going beyond place making, to place holding, establishing, and growing – changing course to emphasize what matter most: People.


We will gather once again at the Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh on May 17-18, 2016.

PCRG’s membership of 55 organizations represents 250% growth since we first launched the Summit six years ago. With nearly 600 participants we will convene over the course of two full days for the first time. Keynote speakers include ULI Senior Fellow Ed McMahon and Author of Happy City, Charles Montgomery.

PCRG leverages this event to raise the bar in community development: participants gain exposure to industry best practices and national trends, develop tactics to enhance the quality of life of those they serve, and this year, will dive deeply into the role and importance of place in people’s lives.

We hope you join us!
