On Saturday, March 1, 2014, more than 300 neighborhood, arts and cultural, civic, community and faith-based leaders and volunteers joined Mayor Buddy Dyer for his 9th annual Mayor’s Neighborhood & Community Summit. The purpose of this annual Summit is to bring neighborhood and community leaders together for a day of learning, networking and sharing.
Participants spent most of the day in workshop sessions where they gathered the resources and information necessary to build a strong, vibrant community that is the best place to live, work, retire and raise a family. “I want the Summit to be the platform for our involved citizens to learn and share new trends and practices for civic engagement and community building,” says Mayor Buddy Dyer. This year’s Summit was held at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton at the entrance to Universal Orlando.
