2019: So far, we've held a Statewide Training & Learning Exchange in Westby, co-hosted with Kickapoo Conversations. We spoke at the Inclusivity Summit about our broad-based relational model, and helped facilitate a small group discussion at "Where Mission Meets Advocacy." We gathered with local leaders in Green Lake for a Training Intensive on the relational model and depolarizing habits.
We've met internally, worked on collaborative efforts, participated in strategic meetings around civic health and rural housing initiatives, held trainings for association staff, and promoted events held by each of the three regional groups.
The core of our work is ongoing: we are about building day-to-day relationships, getting the work done, and staying true to our values and mission.
2018: We held two Statewide Training & Learning Exchange gatherings, co-hosted with Southwest Partners and Stronger Together Fox Valley. Our Core Team met three times in person, twice over conference call, and countless times one-on-one and in smaller committee meetings.
We spoke at the Healthiest State Summit and the Aging & Disability Conference about social isolation and polarization. Kickapoo Conversations, Stronger Together Fox Valley, and Southwest Partners organized their own planning meetings, events, and relational one-on-ones.
