Finding Solutions Together
Anna Bierer, Northeast Regional Consultant, held an informative and engaging meeting for her members. At the meeting, members received fundraising ideas as well as tutor and learner retention strategies. They also explored community collaboration and partnerships that can further agencies abilities to help learners reach their full potential. These opportunities to network and discuss are extremely beneficial to our members. As one attendee stated, "It is always good to hear about how similar organizations work with their volunteers and students, what challenges everyone is currently facing, some of the new ideas they have, and so on. Smaller conferences make it easier to talk to almost everyone."
