The Forum convened more than 60 community development practitioners from Massachusetts CDCs, public agencies and intermediaries who were engaged by two nationally known community development experts.  

They presented models for developing effective strategies to impact neighborhood real estate markets in a time of volatility. Bob Weissbourd, a Chicago based consultant, the former Vice President of Shorebank and a member of the Obama housing transition team presented his model called "Dynamic Neighborhood Taxonomy" in the morning. Allan Mallach of Rutgers University, the National Housing Institute and the Brookings Institution presented his model called "Managing Neighborhood Change" in the afternoon.
