Essential Facilitation, a two day session, will provide participants an opportunity to:
- Learn to design results-focused agendas, processes, and move to action
- Learn about tools to make decisions more easily
- Learn how to use win-win thinking to resolve conflicts
IMPORTANT: Registration limited to 15 participants. First Come First Serve
Whether you are new to RBA or just need a refresher, you will walk away from this session with a better understanding of RBA methods and tools that can help you engage in the planning and implementation work going on in your community.
This clinic will cover:
- What these indicators really mean
- How the data are collected
- What the strengths and weaknesses are
The clinic will also provide an opportunity to explore problems communities are having with these indicators, what additional indicators might be available, and how the existing indicators might be presented in more successful ways.

Note: Please members of your health work group and consider extending a personal invitation to your local health director.
Participants will also have the opportunity to explore and/or do some problem solving with their own data with support from the Charter Oak Group.
The session will be facilitated by Shawn Stelow Griffin and Christopher Barnes from The Finance Project, an organization focused on providing technical assistance and training on sustaining promising state and community initiatives. The Finance Project has provided technical assistance to community-based organizations, city-wide collaborative groups and state-level initiatives and agencies to help inform policy makers, program developers and community leaders as they develop sustainability strategies to support effective programs and services for children, families, and communities.
By Monday, May 6th, each registering community must complete the following activities:
- Convene a leadership group to complete the sustainability self-assessment tool at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CTDIsites
- Identify a team of up to three (3) people to attend the session. The team should be diverse and include people who can provide leadership to ongoing sustainability planning efforts in the community such as the collaborative leadership, collaborative sponsor, municipal government, the school district and local funders.
- Identify a point of contact for the sustainability planning session who will register the community team.
The session will be limited to 40 participants. In the event the registration exceeds the limit, the Memorial Fund will determine who will be accepted into the session based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to:
- The composition of the team
- The range of other capacity building initiatives that the community is already engaged in.
- The degree to which the community has already begun to think about sustainability based on the self-assessment.
