The seminar focuses on how communities can best describe a project to potential volunteers, funding sources and the community at large, as well as prepare for the judging that will take place on August 8, 9 and 10. This is a good opportunity for new groups to analyze projects through the eyes of the larger community and to plan for some of the longer term implications. It’s also a chance for returning organizations to look at their endeavor through fresh eyes.
“Being able to describe a community endeavor in favorable terms – while breaking down the needs into “volunteer-size bites” – is an art,” said Sullivan Renaissance Program Director Glenn Pontier. “Our staff will talk about long-range planning, volunteerism, fundraising, project management and other related issues.”
The seminar will also review the Renaissance judging criteria, including aesthetic improvement, collaboration, youth involvement, maintenance and sustainability.
