The Abundant Community 2014 is an integrated set of regional community building events that includes Sector-Based Community Building Workshops for over 500 sector leaders on June 5th and 6th who we hope will find a calling to lead delegations from their own neighborhoods, communities, businesses, schools, agencies, institutions, congregations, temples, and mosques for the Regional Community Building Conference to be held in October. The Regional Conference is designed to facilitate interaction among more than 1,500 participants in an effort to foster cross-sector relationships, collaboration, and new community building strategies to support Healthy People and Healthy Places across the San Joaquin Valley.
