Thursday, September 18, 8:00am – 1:00pm | $65 | includes lunch
Are you looking for great examples of how land trusts have collaborated and conserved more land? How about examples of how they have become more efficient, built more capacity, and raised more money? This interactive workshop will provide you with ideas, tools and strategies to help strengthen your organization through partnerships and collaboration. Participants will explore: a) what areas are ripe for collaboration; b) when collaboration makes sense; c) minefields to avoid; d) mechanics of collaboration, including communications; and e) decision-making protocols and planning in collaboration. Participants will discuss a variety of opportunities, from partnerships, shared staff, phased approaches, program development and mergers. Pre-registration is required.
