CLI: Community Leadership Institute

We know that successful resident ownership demands a great deal from community leaders like you. We want to give you every advantage we can. The Community Leadership Institute is one of the best training and networking opportunities we can offer!

CLI is a free, four-day training conference for ROC leaders from across the country.

In the fall of 2018, ROC USA® will take a large group of ROC leaders to Houston in what has become a perennial favorite for community leaders and staff alike. 2017’s CLI in Los Angels included an extra day to help draft ROC USA’s next strategic plan, our road map for the next few years.

CLI offers a great opportunity to talk with community leaders from other ROCs, engage with ROC USA leaders, and take workshops on leadership. All of the attendees are volunteer neighborhood leaders, though ROC leaders are the only ones who represent an association that owns their communities. Everyone who has ever come has just raved about the value of the experience. For a feel of the scope of classes offered, take a look at the 2017 CLI brochure.

Attending the CLI costs ROC leaders nothing but their time and thoughts: ROC USA and NeighborWorks® America covers the cost of travel, lodging, food and registration.

Applications are typically due in late spring. You can always email us to be notified when the application process begins for 2018.
