We are committed to serving as a leading advocate for quality community growth throughout North Carolina. To fulfill this leadership role, we will continue to conduct outreach and engagement workshops, symposia, and facilitate other conversations to inform elected officials, public agency staff, NGOs, the real estate industry, design, and planning professions, and the community at large about emerging trends, evidence-based research and practical applications that support quality, sustainable and resilient community building, placemaking and growth.
