Key Dates

The learning collaborative officially begins in October, 2021.  There will be a kick-off event in October (likely virtual).  Prior to this date and beginning immediately upon joining there is a preparatory phase consisting of an application, initial assessment with staff, confirmation of key dates, roles, and expectations, and some assignments in preparation for our first session.  The Learning Phase - October through September 2021-2022 - will consist of twice-monthly online sessions, mentor sessions, and expert reviews to support your collaborative leadership development, Community Profile, and Community Strategic Planning.  While communities only have to commit to one year at a time, this collaborative is designed as a three-year engagement.
