The ROC Leadership Institute takes place over three days annually in June on the campus of Southern New Hampshire University, where we have use of classroom space, a dining hall and one of the newest (and air-conditioned) dormitories on campus.
Launched in 2018, the Institute is modeled after the NeighborWorks America Community Leadership Institute, a conference that ROC leaders attended for nine years before forming an experience specifically to leaders in Resident Owned Communities.
