The State Assets Policy Project (SAPP), an initiative of the Center for Social Development (CSD) at Washington University in St. Louis, hosted its 6th asset-building policy conference November 7-9, 2007, in St. Louis, Missouri. Titled, Partnerships: Working Together and Working for the Field, the conference had three purposes: 1) to share information about current asset-building policies, and the existing or potential universality of these policies; 2) to facilitate collaboration between participating organizations; and 3) to consider the potential for universality of proposed assets policies, strategies, and systems. This document provides a summary of conference activities geared to assist conference participants to fulfill these purposes, and an outline of the assets policy and program ideas identified by conference participants.
