A year after its first meeting, the Innovation Forum has released its Phase I report documenting the progress achieved by its steering committee and Working Groups. Of particular note is the fact that the Forum has met both of its goals: it has both spurred dialogue about innovation in the community development field by involving over one hundred people in its Working Groups and Stakeholder meetings and created new resources to support innovative practices, such as new financial tools.

More than 70 people gathered at the headquarters of Boston Private Bank to consider the future of the community development field in Massachusetts.  The first public event of the Community Development Innovation Forum co-sponsored by Boston LISC and the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations (MACDC) drew community development corporation staff and board members, lenders, funders, public agency staff, and academic researchers for a three hour discussion of the central questions facing community developers in 2008.
