Developing a Second Phase Welcoming Plan or Initiative

Welcoming planning is a process for operationalizing welcoming efforts by developing cross-sector strategies to produce results.  It involves looking at where the community wants to go, assessing the community's current situation, and developing and implementing approaches for moving forward.  Welcoming plans often provide communities with a three-year road map - but what happens after those three years? Join us for a lively discussion of “What’s next when it comes to welcoming planning?” We will be joined by communities that have each taken a different approach to continuing their welcoming work beyond their initial planning phase.  Whether your community is planning for the first time, planning again, or not planning yet, come explore the many opportunities to engage in this strategic work.
