“Regional Economic Development: Shared Assets and Common Concerns” will be the focus of the next Productive Public Conversation (PPC) on March 18, a free civil dialogue training designed by alumni of the Leadership Whatcom 10-month Community Leadership Program.
Leadership Whatcom’s PPCs provide nonpartisan civil dialogue trainings focusing on difficult community issues. The three-hour sessions alternate learning about an issue from multiple perspectives, small group discussions, and practicing skills for keeping tough issues moving forward.
Leadership Whatcom is a program of the Whatcom Coalition for Healthy Communities, which is sponsored by United Way of Whatcom County, St. Joseph Hospital and the city of Bellingham. Additional Leadership Whatcom sponsors include Puget Sound Energy, Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce and the Whatcom Community Foundation.
Open to the public, the PPC will take place 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 18. RSVPs are required by March 15 by contacting Leadership@whatcomcoalition.org or 715-1061. Directions to the Bellingham location will be provided upon RSVP.
