Sullivan Renaissance Seminar on Wednesday, December 7

November 14, 2005


[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance will hold a hands-on seminar to help local communities learn how to manage their projects like the professionals do, with an emphasis on team building. 


Community Development & Grants Supervisor Joseph Czajka of the Sullivan County Division of Planning & Community Development will lead the workshop about project management on Wednesday, December 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Liberty.  Space is limited.  Pre-registration is required.


The seminar will outline a planning and management process called the “Part of Tens.”  This includes a strong focus on creation of a team, identifying and defining roles and responsibilities, as well as charting project milestones.  Participants will also join in an interactive team exercise on how to hold people accountable and keep a project on track 


Joseph Czajka is a graduate of SUNY Cortland and a Certified Housing Development Finance Professional.  He has been involved in community development and housing for over 17 years, including: director for development of Rural Opportunities, Inc. for the Hudson Valley region; neighborhood mortgage officer for Community Preservation Corp.; and various other government positions in housing, planning, grant writing and community development. 


In 1999, Czajka created a Neighborhood Preservation Corporation in the City of Newburgh to operate programs for economically disenfranchised families.  In the past 15 years he has written, secured and administered over $30 million in NYS and federal community development funding.


The seminar is sponsored by Sullivan Renaissance, The Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development, and The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development.


Sullivan Renaissance is a two-phase aesthetic improvement program of the Beaverkill Foundation with support from the Gerry Foundation.  It has funded more than 165 projects in all 6 villages and 15 towns in Sullivan County during the last five years.  Details of the 2006 program will be announced at the Winter Forum in Liberty on February 11.
