About the Summit
New Orleans is a city of Neighborhoods. The annual Neighborhood Summit celebrates the strength, history, and diversity of our city's neighborhoods, bringing together community leaders, non-profit agencies, and city government. First held in 2012, the annual summit continues to grow each year.
At the day-long summit, neighborhood leaders and residents share information across communities, develop new skills to bring home, and build relationships old and new.

Neighborhood Leaders ,
Thank you for joining the Neighborhood Engagement office on Saturday for the largest Neighborhood Summit to date. This year's theme was Celebrating 300 years of Resilient Neighborhoods: Laying a Strong Foundation for the Future.
Over 400 leaders from across the City attended this year’s event and participated in workshops and panel discussions focused on public safety, resilience, equity, housing, coastal restoration, emergency preparation, and faith based collaboration. We appreciate your dedication to making New Orleans a great place to call home, and your commitment to the community and in your respective neighborhoods.
A huge shoutout to our dedicated sponsors and knowledgeable presenters!
