2023 National Land Bank Network (NLBN) Summit

The 2023 National Land Bank Network (NLBN) Summit is the only national event dedicated to urban, suburban, and rural land banks. This October in Cleveland, land bank leaders and staff will get to learn about the latest strategies for addressing problem properties, share successes and common challenges, and network with fellow leaders in the field.  

NLBN seeks land bank leaders and practitioners to share their knowledge and expertise at the 2023 Summit. Based on input from land banks across the country, we have identified learning tracks and session topics for the conference and are looking for speakers to address specific subject areas.  

Successful NLBN Summit speaker submissions will articulate knowledge of practical tools, strategies, and/or program expertise for one of these topics. 

You can view the full list of sessions and descriptions here.

Interested parties are invited to review the session list and guidelines and to submit one or more proposals no later than May 24, 2023. 

Speakers will receive complimentary conference registration. Travel and lodging not included.
