Community development and entrepreneurial support activities are becoming increasingly common in Texas and around the country. For example, CDI (Community Development Institute) Texas 2017 will take place March 6-9, 2017. CDI Texas 2017 is presented by Lone Star College in The Woodlands.
From their flyer, “CDI is a national training offered in multiple locations and endorsed by the Community Development Council (CDC). CDC is a nonprofit organization founded to promote the advancement of community development professionals through the accreditation of educational programs, professional certifications, and the development of community volunteer leaders. The program consists of three, four-day training sessions which can be completed in subsequent years at the same site location or by fast tracking to multiple sites within the CDI network in a single year. CDI training is offered at the following locations: CDI Central, CDI Midwest, CDI Northwest and CDI Texas.”
The curriculum is designed to have offerings for most levels of experience with community development and includes three different years in their curriculum.
