119 Collaboration: A Way Through Crisis 

Recently, local agencies have been forced to rethink how they conduct business in order to effectively serve their public (as driven by issues such as COVID-19, homelessness, and fires). As counties, our resiliency and ability to deliver appropriate solutions requires interdisciplinary, interdepartmental, and interjurisdictional collaboration. Bringing together multiple organizations and jurisdictions - each with their diverse interests, perspectives, and experiences - can be challenging. However, when collaboration is done strategically, the results often to lead to better outcomes for everyone.

This course will examine the techniques and practices of building effective collaborations with a focus on the critical aspects of communication needed for people to work together effectively. Through interactive group discussions and exercises, staff and elected officials will be offered the tools to build efficient collaborations. Learn from county leaders who have successfully established bridges between organizations and diverse communities of interest.

Instructors:  Scott DeMoss is a County Administrative Officer of Glenn County, Nate Greenberg is the Director of Information Technology in Mono County, and Sonia M. De La Rosa the Deputy County Administrative Officer in Fresno County.
