MEDIA ADVISORY - Calgary's Community Associations. Vital to communities or irrelevant? New Report

CALGARY, Oct. 11, 2016 /CNW/ - Calgary has a network of 151 community associations (CAs). They provide programs and amenities to neighbourhoods and are considered an integral part of the city's fabric. But what is the role of community association in a modern city?  Are they still needed and what should they do?  Do they deserve funding, or should they be left to fend for themselves? 

Tomorrow, The School of Public Policy with co-author, Brian W. Conger will hold a media conference to release a report that studies the role of community associations.  The report will ask some hard questions both of community associations and the City of Calgary.  The report is timely, since the City of Calgary is weeks away from discussions with community associations on their roles. 

WHAT:

Press conference to release new report "On the Role and Future of Calgary's Community Associations"



WHEN:

Wed. Oct 12, 2016, 11 a.m. mountain



WHERE:

Downtown campus, room 420, 4th floor, 906 -8th Ave. S.W., Calgary, AB
