Common Waters Fund Forum
We've had many discussions about the role and reach of Common Waters, as well as about future direction and capacity needs. We can use this forum space to share ideas and examples.
Check out the Proud Partner brochure, which is full of ideas for how partners can promote the partnership without losing their own identity.
MAIN DISCUSSION TOPICS:
William Penn Foundation initiative – Partners have submitted proposals pertaining to their "clusters" that are going before their Board on January 17. We should know soon after that what was approved. Most of the work planned for the Pocono-Kittatinny Cluster (PKC) overlaps closely with the partnership's work, so expect a lot of activity and updates over the next few months as the PKC work gets going. Pinchot proposed support for a cluster coordinator who would serve as the main point of contact and liaison between the cluster and partnership.
We are applying to send a team to the Appalachian Gateway Communities Regional Workshop in February 2014.
