Current Events at our Etzel Community Center
SLACO is a two-pronged organization: (1) we are a robust platform where neighborhood associations can work together for learning and action to achieve common purposes, and (2) we are in part a place-based organization working in urban neighborhoods. 

Our largest concentration of place-based work at the present time is in the West End neighborhood.  We program an outreach center there, which offers activities to assist nearby residents.

Two neighborhood associations, SPUD (Skinker Page Union Delmar) and West End Neighbors meet at the center.

Check out these activities below!

2013 SLACO Regional Neighborhoods Conference  A Great Success
About 150 people joined in the regional neighborhoods conference at Harris-Stowe State University at some point during the day on Saturday, November 2, for the 18th annual conference.  SLACO and its many academic, non-profit, and governmental partners put together 18 breakout sessions, four informal lunch choices with honored guests, and a keynote panel that discussed community engagement.

The 2014 regional conference will be held at Harris-Stowe on Saturday, November 1, 2014.  Please save all day to attend.

If you would like to participate in the planning and publicizing of the 2014 conference, please contact SLACO Executive Director Nancy Thompson. 

Neighborhood Roundtable Tradition Resumes


In October, SLACO resumed its Neighborhood Roundtable, a series of early evening programs allowing neighborhood leaders to exchange practical ideas for all types of St. Louis metropolitan area neighborhoods.

This "member only" event is offered as a benefit to leaders of a neighborhood association that joins SLACO.

The Roundtable is offered during months when there is no All-Neighborhoods Forum or annual conference.
