Upcoming trainingRURAL ROUTES TO CHANGE--WEBINAR NETWORKING

Facilitated by Rose Thelen, Praxis TAP and expert on rural coordinated community responses, Rural Routes to Change feature guests working to implement key CCR strategies in rural communities to share their current experiences.

Wednesday, December 17
Leveraging Key Features of Rural Life to Benefit CCR Efforts

Rose Thelen
, Praxis Technical Assistance Partner + Rural Grantee

Effective CCR’s are built on relationships, which are often already in place in small rural communities. Key people may have taken up the cause of improving inter-agency responses before your CCR was even in place. Identifying these people and changes can make the task of standardizing and improved outcomes simpler than starting from scratch. Relationships that exist outside of the agencies directly involved in a CCR can influence community support for overall goals. Also, people have more frequent access and interaction with each other in a variety of settings. While not negating the problems associated with implementing a CCR in a small community, this session will help you identify rural strengths that can work in your favor. Join our conversation as we consider:

  • Formal and informal power in Rural communities,
  • What’s already been done,
  • Leveraging informal access, and
  • Developing and maintaining media relationships
