About the Spring meeting:

Twice annually (Spring and Fall), the Partnership holds a Partnership-wide meeting in which all partners and interested parties are invited to come together and build relationships and collaborations. These meetings are a chance to:

  • Connect or reconnect with the Partnership, learning more about the initiative and on-going projects
  • Build and strengthen a network among organizations working throughout the region
  • Spark conversation and collaboration across political and sectorial boundaries
  • Help partners understand opportunities to engage in the on-going work of the Partnership
  • Allow partners to help define the direction of the Partnership

We hope you will be able to join us!
