The Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund’s Community Practitioners Network, a multi-year leadership program designed to enhance community and economic development in the North Country, has graduated its second class of local leaders.
CPN helps people who do community and economic development learn and strengthen leadership skills and immerses them in best practices for bolstering communities and economies. And, importantly, it connects them with one another so they can assist and inform one another in that work.
Participants attend multiple sessions and go on site visits both within and outside the North Country region. Participants apply to join the program, for which all costs are covered by the Tillotson Fund of the Charitable Foundation.
Congrats to the 2018 graduates, thank you for your time, for your thoughtful participation and for your deep commitment to North Country communities.
