The Neighborhood Leadership Gathering is a twice-a-year gathering of residents who come together to share and learn from each other about major topics influencing Bellevue. Anyone interested in the health and quality of life in their Bellevue neighborhood is welcome to attend.
Our residents know their neighborhoods better than anyone! Neighborhood Leadership Gatherings are open to any neighborhood leader who has a passion for investing in their community and a willingness to share their heart, vision, priorities and best practices with other like-minded leaders across Bellevue.
Held in the spring and fall, these meetings provide an opportunity for neighborhood association board members and emerging leaders to share best practices, learn from each other and dialogue with Neighborhood Outreach and City staff about current issues facing Bellevue’s neighborhoods. The format usually includes an interactive opportunity to share neighborhood priorities, learn from a keynote speaker on a current neighborhood issue, participate in table discussions and enjoy light refreshments.
