Goal IV: Build Community Capacity, Engagement, and Image
Objective 2: Strengthen regional partnerships and collaborations.
It will be necessary to reinforce the connections between the Montgomery region’s public, private, and civic organizations if each of them are to be maximally effective. These organizations must see themselves as part of a highly interconnected and
mutually dependent region rather than isolated players in a competitive game for resources. Input participants mentioned the need for greater intraregional collaboration among governing bodies. They also mentioned that it can be difficult to
engage some of the poorer or less connected communities. Those with the capacity and vision for bringing together a broad collection of organizations and constituencies will need to use innovative approaches to accomplish these goals.
- Enhance and expand the Leadership Montgomery and Torchbearers Leadership programming.
