On September 17-19, the 2014 Assets Learning Conference (ALC) will convene over 1,200 stakeholders to explore cutting-edge strategies to promote assets and close the opportunity gap. The venue for this signature event will be the brand-new Washington Marriott Marquis in the heart of our nation’s capital.

CFED invites you to submit your ideas for this year’s ALC. As you will see in the Call for Ideas, the 2014 ALC will include intensive capacity-building workshops, plenaries, sessions, roundtables and receptions. The Conference theme, Platforms for Prosperity, invites participants to explore platforms (in housing, education, employment, banking, health care and social services) that move individuals and families from poverty to financial security and economic opportunity.

CFED wants your input on the content of this year’s ALC. Do you have ideas for topics that should be covered within one of the platforms? Are there topics related to research, policy, practice or anything else that you want to see? Do you know of specific ways of delivering content that are particularly effective? If so, we want to hear from you!

If you have ideas to share, please fill out this short questionnaire by February 21.
