Together we will develop our understanding of how relationships evolve, learn what key practices will progress relationships, and think deeply about our community and the barriers to growing meaningful connections. Using the relationship-building framework as a foundation, we will identify strategies for engaging community members as partners and develop new approaches to nurturing authentic relationships. Join us for this interactive session and an opportunity to learn from and with a community of practitioners!
1. Explore the importance of relationship development within the community
2. Review key strategies and approaches to developing positive relationships within the community
3. Assess relationships and identify methods to support relationship growth
