Online/Dial-up Conversations with John and Peter


How Strong Neighborhoods Work with Local Governments
Conversation with Ron Dwyer-Voss
MONDAY November 6 at 1 pm Eastern

Ron Dwyer-Voss is the owner and founder Pacific Community Solutions, Inc., a training, consulting and technical assistance company focused on working with community-based initiatives, nonprofit organizations and local governments. His work focuses on asset-based community development and organizing, community engagement and mobilization, participatory evaluation, education, and community health. Since 1982, Ron has been a community organizer, community development corporation director, leadership development coach/trainer and elected school board member.

We will take about fifteen minutes to talk about Ron's work and then transition into how all of our experiences in working with citizens to build strong communities can be translated into your own work. 

After our opening remarks we’ll open the conversation up for your questions and insights.
