Increasing participation and membership across sectors and constituent groups is a fundamental ability that contributes to understanding the community context and collaborative planning. Continuously working to expand membership to ensure a diverse and engaged group of participants grounds the work in what is locally important and feasible.
In this training, we will address four primary issues in increasing membership and participation: outreach, recruitment, engagement in the effort, and maintaining involvement and sustaining commitment.

Identify key principles in outreach and recruitment that can contribute to the group’s effort

Understand how to create an atmosphere and conditions that promote diversity, participation and success
Learn steps in assessing whether the current involvement is sufficient and/or how to make changes in the participation plan
