Working Together

I am in the process of bringing together community stakeholders, grant makers, civic leaders and nonprofits to discuss the challenges and opportunities we are facing here in the Greater Grand Forks area. I feel it is imperative that we start conversations with all sectors of our community and band together to address our issues we face to make and keep a healthy community.

We all have our focused mission and sometimes we can get too over focused and need to step back and look at the big picture and ask- Where are we going? Are we addressing the pressing needs of our community? What do we see as emerging challenges? Where are our opportunities? Where are the gaps? How do we fill the gaps? I believe that the best way to help a community thrive, is to work together respecting the differences and embracing all perspectives to move a community forward in a positive direction.
