Community Leadership in Action
Community projects here we come! The Leadership Great South Coast participants have pitched their projects, voted, decided on teams and are proud to announce the project aims for 2018;
• Support business growth and economic development in Warrnambool CBD
• Increasing population growth and secondary settlement in the Glenelg Shire
• Advocating for and supporting Suicide Prevention
• Women’s Health Promotion
Now it’s time for project planning. Teams are working on defining their project description, the aims, objectives and benefits of their projects. It’s time for us to put in place our Project Management learnings to work out our responsibilities and risks and preparing a GANTT chart to keep us on track throughout our project.
We received some great advice from Dr. Bernadette Northeast who presented at our Community Leadership in Action Program Day on grants including local funding opportunities. Applying for funding takes time and effort and Bernadette suggested “value your time” and come up with a need/want/wish list so you are prepared for funding opportunities.
The Leadership Great South Coast profile and networks will be a valuable asset to the project teams as they initiate their community projects.
