On Saturday, March 21, Mayor Buddy Dyer is inviting more than 300 neighborhood, arts and cultural, civic, community and faith-based leaders and volunteers to join him at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton for the 10th annual Mayor’s Neighborhood & Community Summit.

According to the City website, the purpose of the annual summit is to “bring neighborhood and community leaders together for a day of learning, networking and sharing.”

Participants will have the chance to attend workshops on how to build a stronger, more vibrant community.

Now is your chance to nominate your neighbor for the one and only, Mayor Buddy Dyer’s Neighborhood Champion Award. The MBDNCA was established as a way to recognize individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty for their neighborhood, “from safety initiatives to beautification efforts, these individuals are always looking for ways to improve the quality of life in their neighborhood.”

To qualify for the award, a nominee must be at least 18 years or older, live in the City of Orlando and have made a contribution to their neighborhood in a volunteer capacity in 2014. The deadline for nominations is no later than 5 p.m. on February 27. The award will be presented on March 21 at the 10th Annual Neighborhood & Community Summit.
