City of Houston Seeking Neighborhood Tours for NUSA Conference

October 29, 2014

The City of Houston is hosting the Neighborhoods, USA (NUSA) conference from May 20 – 23, 2015 in Houston, Texas. NUSA is a non-profit group focused on building stronger communities by providing learning, information sharing and networking opportunities for its members.

Meaningful and entertaining neighborhood tours are one of the key components of a successful NUSA conference. The neighborhood tours provide an opportunity for local organizations and neighborhood groups to showcase their neighborhood based programs and places to a national audience. Conference participants have an opportunity to interact with local community members and learn from programs occurring in the unique places that make Houston the vibrant city that it is.

The NUSA 2015 Neighborhood Tour Committee is seeking proposals from Houston community members to host a neighborhood tour showcasing Houston’s dynamic and diverse places, people and neighborhoods. Proposals are due by Monday, December 1, 2014, 5:00 pm. Proposals must include both neighborhood tour and contact information. Preference is given to proposals that address the conference theme, Passion into Action.

Please contact us at 713-837-7836 or NUSA2015@houstontx.gov for further information or to discuss possible neighborhood tours that your organization or neighborhood group could host. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the NUSA 2015 Conference.
