Sustaining Coalition Leadership Through Innovative Approaches

Thursday, 02/07/2019
9:00 AM
10:15 AM
Chesapeake J-L


Sustainability often focuses on the work that the coalition has created over time, but we all know that momentum is achieved when paid staff is guiding the process. Join your colleagues in a discussion around why having paid staff is imperative. The discussion will include tips on how to engage in a way that helps to sustain a coalition. Participants will identify and create key talking points to bring back home to share with stakeholder/funders on the value a coalition leaders serves. In this session, participants will be shown tools that engage our coalition members and provide an opportunity for their voices and ideas to be heard so that there is buy-in to the plan, which builds sustainability from the beginning. Join us for this engaging workshop where your thoughts and ideas are essential to shaping the innovative approaches.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to leave with new innovative approaches to sustain coalition leadership, be familiar with a process to effectively engage participants in conversations, and be familiar with how to build consensus within a room of many ideas in a relatively short period of time.
