HOUSTON (Oct. 2012) – Houston Community College and nFocus Solutions™ are hosting Communities for Change 2012, the industry-leading national symposium for nonprofit, education, foundation and public sectors. Local nonprofit and education leaders, including speakers from HCC, are among the headliners featured at the leadership symposium Oct.10-11 at the Westin Oaks Houston Hotel.

“We’re excited to be a part of this year’s Communities for Change symposium,” said Charles Cook, HCC Vice Chancellor of Instruction. “The special discounted rate for local attendees gives them added incentive to attend the conference, where they can hear from Houston area speakers and network with colleagues from across the city and the nation.”

Local speakers at the conference include Cook, Robert Wimpelberg of All Kids Alliance, Mark White of Houston ISD and Clemelia Richardson from the City of Houston. Keynote speakers from around the country include John Kania of FSG and author of “Collective Impact,” and Betty Molina Morgan of America’s Promise Alliance.

“There’s no better way for nonprofit and education leaders to hear about successes and lessons learned at both the local level and industry-wide,” said Ananda Roberts, president of nFocus Solutions. “Only by working together can we overcome the challenges facing our communities as they work to give our children the best possible future.”
