 As an all-volunteer land trust (or even one with part-time staff) how can we get more work done
without just hiring (more) staff?

Join us for a facilitated conversation focused on different models that bring more human resources to bear on increasing demands for small and/or all-volunteer land trusts.  We’ll explore several land trust management models including a shared staff position, a shared services coalition, a collaborative multi-town project, a land trust merger.  

Facilitated by Sharon Danosky, a non-profit consultant and land trust coach, this workshop will be highly interactive, with an emphasis on break-out exercises and discussions.  The goal? You will leave the discussion better informed of alternative management models and ready to share ideas and next steps to pursue with your land trust board and neighboring land trusts.

Cost:  Free for CLCC members; $25 for non-members

Light refreshments will be served.

Because of the interactive nature of this workshop, space is limited.  Please RSVP your choice of location to Cristina at chayden@ctconservation.org
