The 2017 Annual Conference on Citizenship, taking place on October 19-20, 2017 in Washington DC, will convene individuals and organizations interested in strengthening civic life in America. With a focus on increasing equity, diversity and inclusion, participants will be challenged to consider the role of civic health as a measure of a community’s ability to address issues of concern. We think of “Civic Life” for a community as all the acts of civic engagement and associated norms and values of its members.

We think of “Civic Health” as the manner in which communities organize to define and address public problems. NCoC’s Civic Health Index is a measure of civic health. “Civic Renewal” is a process that leads to better social outcomes. In the civic renewal frame, stakeholders in a community engage to set a vision and proceed collectively to remove the hindrances to achieving that vision; and build the community infrastructure to achieve the vision and sustain the work. At the core of our joint efforts is the belief that every person has the ability to help their community and country thrive. Strengthening civic life in America is our goal.
