Strategies for Older Suburbs Roundtable Series

Given the nation's economic climate and looming fiscal constraints, many of us are looking for creative solutions to our communities' problems. This Roundtable series, designed exclusively by and for Greater Philadelphia's community and economic development professionals, invites you to share your challenges, bring your good ideas, and brainstorm answers to your colleagues' tough questions.

The Roundtable is an in-person forum that harnesses the experience of our region's community and economic development practitioners to improve Greater Philadelphia's great places! While a guest speaker will kick-off each meeting, participants will shape the discussion.

Join us for our next Roundtable discussion on various strategies on how to engage local businesses and build a more unified downtown. Topics of discussion will include outreach strategies, incentives for businesses, and overall strategies for downtown businesses. David Rucki of DMR Consulting Solutions will lead the roundtable discussion.
