COMMUNITY OF THE MONTH
We invite you to sign up to be a Community of the Month (CotM). This is an opportunity for you to collaborate with other Finalists with whom you share this wonderful experience of revitalizing communities.

As CotM, you will be given 20 minutes to talk about your experience and to share best practices, discuss challenges, and ask your peers for advice as you implement your plan and projects. While not a requirement in the prize, we highly encourage you to sign up and to take advantage of each other’s experience and expertise.

We will feature one CotM at each Finalist Webinar beginning this August and ending in March 2017. To sign up, send us an email at info@americasbestcommunities.com by August 12, 2016. In your email, list three months in order of your preference. We will do our best to accommodate your first preference.
