Thank you for your interest in attending CommonBound 2016! 

CommonBound is taking place July 8-10 at Buffalo State University in Buffalo, NY and will bring together people with powerful visions for the future: a cross-section of community leaders, thinkers, and practitioners from around the world, including the New Economy Coalition’s 140-plus member organizations from throughout the US and Canada. Participants will share strategies and stories, build relationships, highlight achievements, and chart a shared path toward a society that puts people and planet first.

The conference will feature Workshop Tracks and Network Gatherings exploring a range of topics

Our Pricing:

The Conference
Because we want to make CommonBound as accessible as possible, registration is on a sliding scale from $90 - $500. This means, we are asking you to make an honest evaluation of what is within your means for attending the conference this year! The true per-person cost of the conference is $275, so we encourage you to pay at or above that level if it is within your means. This cost is what it takes for us to provide conference space, programming, childcare, translation/interpretation, transportation, and food. We ask that you support the work of CommonBound and the New Economy Coalition by being as generous as possible in your registration amount. If you cannot afford the $90 minimum registration, please fill out the following form to apply for financial support.


Network Gatherings
Network Gatherings are day-long gatherings that will be held on the first day (Friday, July 8th) of CommonBound. If you cannot afford the $20 minimum registration, please fill out the following form to apply for financial support.

CommonBound has a couple affordable housing options for attendees to the conference. Dorm housing is available for $45 per person per night for a double and $90 per person per night for a single. If you cannot afford this, please fill out the following form to apply for financial support.
