This Wednesday, September 28, 2011, we’re having a guest speaker, Dave Wallace, Director, Public Policy Advocacy-Community Impact from United Way of Broward County.    

Community Aspirations Conversations

 As part of our Campaign for the Common Good and participation with United Way Worldwide’s Income Mobilization Initiative, we are holding Community Conversations across Broward County.  We want to gain a better understanding of people’s aspirations for our community; their concerns, hopes and vision for our future.   This forum will provide participants an opportunity to give voice to those aspirations and concerns, and engage them in finding solutions. These conversations will, also, help guide us in building strategies to engage the people of Broward County to realize those aspirations.

The Format:

The Community Conversation is an informal gathering of no more than 15-20 individuals, sharing a meal in a familiar setting.   We will guide the conversations, but primarily listen and record the discussions of the group.

 Ground Rules:

  1. It is a ‘kitchen table’ conversation.  Everyone participates, but no one dominates.
  2. There are no right answers.
  3. Keep an open mind; listen carefully to other participants and try to understand their point of view.
  4. It is ok to disagree, but remain respectful of each other.
  5. Have fun!

Conversation Questions:

  1. What kind of community do you want?  What are your hopes and aspirations for your community?
  2. What are the obstacles/roadblocks to your hopes for your community?
  3. What can or should be done to solve these problems?
  4. What can be done to improve the financial stability of individuals and families?

 This is an opportunity to make yourself heard so come join the conversation.  Food will be provided.
