What is NWCDI?
NWCDI is designed to train
community development professionals and volunteers in the techniques of
modern leadership and management of community development efforts. Since the

country have participated in the program.
The comprehensive program curriculum is designed to meet the increasing
challenges facing community developers in today's changing society and is
applicable for community leaders from towns and cities of all sizes.
NWCDI approaches community development as both a process and a program. It
seeks to develop an individual's ability to identify community problems, set
goals, encourage liaison with outside agencies, stimulate community
interaction, and bring groups together to support competitive economic
development, human resource development and quality of life issues.
Who Should Attend?
officials and volunteers associated with city, county and state government,
chambers of commerce, private and public sector economic development
organizations, utility companies, and financial institutions will find the
institute a valuable learning tool for the development of individual and
community leadership skills.
At NWCDI you will learn
current strategies for sustaining strong communities, attend exciting
classes from top community development instructors and develop networking
relationships with other city leaders.

“This is my first year at the NWCDI and I’ve enjoyed this conference
immensely. It’s been very timely. The speakers are fantastic.
Everything I have learned here, every class, every speaker has covered
topics and issues that pertain to everything I do in Minidoka County. I
will be able to use this in the years ahead.” Tony Morley, Zoning
