LEADERS COME TOGETHER FOR ADVANCING COMMUNITIES
The WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships will bring together campus and community leaders throughout the region on Friday, November 15th for the Advancing Communities professional development training and conference.
The goal of the meeting is for campus and community leaders to learn ways to advance in their area by identifying ways to partner with other organizations throughout the region.
Advancing Communities will take place at WKU's South Campus building from 8:30am-12:30pm. The WKU ALIVE Center welcomes nonprofit leaders, community leaders and faculty and staff from educational institutions that are interested in community partnerships to attend the event. The speakers will consist of experienced professionals from WKU and local nonprofits presenting on a variety of topics. The three sets of breakout sessions will include topics such as working with diverse community communities and faith-based institutions, leadership and team building, marketing, finding funds, and evaluating services. The ALIVE Center believes working together to develop in these areas is essential to regional stewardship.
"Regional stewardship promotes development, partnerships, and engagement statewide and in our region. It's important to come together via conferences like "Advancing Communities" so that we can share resources that exist in our region and encourage regional citizenship throughout Kentucky," said Lauren Cunningham, ALIVE Center Community Engagement Coordinator.
Participation in the training will be $45.00, which includes breakfast and materials. Registration is open at http://www.wku.edu/alive/advancing_communities.php. Proceeds will benefit the ALIVE Center's programs for regional stewardship. For more information, contact the WKU ALIVE Center at 270-782-0082.
