The 2009 National CED Conference Committee is accepting ‘Expressions of Interest' for presenters and presentations. Concurrent workshops are scheduled for June 4 & 5. These workshops should represent a range of CED streams and lenses that reflect our member priorities and provide topics of interest to all participants. Please view our workshop sheet by clicking here. This year, a key theme will be Indigenous Models of CED.

You are invited to respond by filling out the Expression of Interest Form for consideration as we develop the workshops and program for this conference. Please identify where your proposed presentation would fit on the workshop worksheet. Deadline for submissions is January 08, 2009. Please contact Lydia Giles (, National Conference Coordinator, if you have questions about the process for submission.

The 2009 National CED Conference will be held June 3-6 at the University of Winnipeg in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba. Plan to join more than 400 community economic development workers, volunteers, professionals and supporters from across Canada to explore ideas and share insights on community economic development activities and policies.

Come also to help us celebrate the Canadian Community Economic Development Network's 10th anniversary!
